  2. "Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves. We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves."

  3. This is the second response to Magpie's prompt I've seen and now I understand why it brings to mind Wordsworth's "The Solitary Reaper." Beautiful work with the form, Ginny.

  11. This reads like a prayer, a beautiful petition of hope and grace. I love the grain to bread imagery woven throughout.
