Kids Poems : The Wheat Field

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 13, 2016.

  1. Field of wheat, so full and fair,
    Shining, with thy sunny hair
    Lightly waving either way,
    Graceful as the breezes play-
    Looking like a summer sea,
    How I love to gaze at thee !
    Pleasant art thou to the sight ;
    And to thought, a rich delight.
    Then, thy voice is music sweet,
    Softly-sighing Field of Wheat.

    Pointing to the genial sky,
    Rising straight, and aiming high,
    Every stalk is seen to shoot
    As an arrow, from the root.
    Like a well-trained company,
    All, in uniform, agree
    From the footing to the ear ;
    All in order strict appear.
    Marshaled by a skilful hand,
    All together bow, or stand -
    Still, within the proper bound ;
    None o'ersteps the given ground -
    With its tribute held to pay
    At His nod whom they obey.
    Each the gems that stud its crown
    Will ere long for man lay down :
    Thou with promise art replete
    Of the precious sheaves of wheat.

    How thy strength in weakness lies !
    Not a robber-bird that flies
    Finds support whereby to put
    On a stalk her lawless foot ;
    Not a predatory beak
    Plunges down, thy stores to seek,
    Where the guard of silver spears
    Keeps the fruit, and decks the ears.
    No vain insect, that could do
    Harm to thee, dares venture through
    Such an armory, or eat
    Off the sheath, to take the wheat.

    What a study do we find
    Opened here for eye and mind !
    In it, who can offer less
    Than to wonder, and confess,
    That on this high-favored ground,
    Faith is blest, and Hope is crowned ?
    Charily her arms may spread
    Wide from it, with gifts of bread.
    Wisdom, Power, and Goodness meet
    In the bounteous Field of Wheat !
