Harvest Time--By Eleanor Michael--United States

Harvest Time

A huge orange moon
hung over the horizon.
Horses, tired, drowsed
in their stalls, while
Mother milked the cows.
Supper was set to the back
of the stove.  The men folk
and children gathered
outdoors in the moonlight -
enjoying the warm, dry
weather - talking about
a bountiful harvest.

Eleanor Michael has published poetry and short stories in a variety of venues.


  1. Eleanor,
    A great poem. It reminded me of the times spent on my great-grandparent' farm in Ohio.
    Your friend,
    David Fox
