THIRTY DAY CHALLENGE--Day Twenty Four

A photo a day for thirty days

Who will help me plant the wheat?

And who, these Harvesters,
And who, these close-shorn fields,
Desolate in short-cut stubble,
That stand, stiff in silence,
That wear the heavy tracks,
That have endured the harvest,
That yielded up their dead,
That bristle through the falling snow,
That whistle wind-song low?

Don Bouchard

A splendid poem and your picture captures the austerity of it, despite the beautiful light.
