The Winnowing Fork Clears the Field

Swing and release
Catch and decease
The people, collected like wheat
Summons the tares in defeat
The winnowing fork clears the field.

Harvest and prepare
Storage and repair
The blades are dull to touch
Soft and delicate as such
The winnowing fork clears the field.

Seasons and range
Foliage and change
The crop deserves their home
Made to wait while blackbirds roam
The winnowing fork clears the field.

Remove and reduce
Recover and re-loose
The seeds are scattered at best
Some by the road, others by crest
The winnowing fork clears the field.

Rapture and ending
Seducing and sending
The workers delight in rest
Their maker tools his test
The winnowing fork clears the fields.
