Th’ invited neighbors to the husking come;
A frolic scene, where work and mirth and play
Unite their charms to cheer the hours away.

        Think, oh, grateful think!
How good the God of Harvest is to you;
Who pours abundance o’er your flowing fields,
While those unhappy partners of your kind
Wide-hover round you, like the fowls of heaven,
And ask their humble dole.
        Thomson—Autumn. L. 169.

Sees the teeming months advance;
The field, the forest, green and gay;
The dappled slope, the tedded hay;
Sees the reddening orchard blow,
The Harvest wave, the vintage flow.
