A Pre-Plant Poem
by Harvest Land
Spring days are getting longer as we start to break the soil
Traffic slows behind equipment driven by local men of toil.
With a warm snap moving through you can almost cut the anticipation
Every move we’re about to make is a result deliberate conversation.
From plant to harvest, and plant again, we’re in a series of decisions
Analyzing data, selecting hybrids and programs and considering provisions.
Sometimes we forget how much promise can be in one tiny seed
Part of our job at Harvest Land is ensuring they get what they need.
We’ve been thinking about this crop since walking through the last
When time passes in seasons of work you come to realize just how fast.
Going forward our days will be designed around the warm sunshine or the rain
When you live your hours according to weather you come to terms with gain or pain.
And so we move into another planting season with anticipation far and wide
In high hopes that good help, weather, supply and parts all live in a time that coincide.
