“Harvest Song”

Out in the meadows the grain has been cradled,
Rye and wheat are stacked and hay will soon be in the barn.
Trees have been shaken and fruit has been gathered,
Homeward now we wend our way upon the final load.
Gladness on ev’ry hand,
Games and dance throughout the land;
Singing merrily we bind the happy harvest wreath.
