John’s Notes: We’ve always got the Dales: a harvest poem in troubled times

Harvest gives perspective
On this troubled world we’re in
A world, some say, in chaos
While others speak of sin

There is so much anxiety
On the direction where we’re going
There is so much uncertainty
No easy way of knowing

So it’s good to get together here
With family and friends
To mark another season
As another harvest ends

And think how much stronger
People are together
Holding each other closely
Through every kind of weather

And consider how creation
Keeps us together too
How lambing, seedtime, harvest
Bring life to me and you

So in these days where questions
Round every corner meet us
Let’s not let Brexit worries
Weigh on us and defeat us

Harvest gives us trust
In wider, deeper things
In each other, inthe eternal
Those things which make us sing

Prorogation, segregation,
Whatever else prevails
We’ve always got each other and
We’ve always got the Dales
