Spiritual/Reflective Poems Autumn Poems

The flour that makes the golden crust

    Was first the wheat of gold -

And, *planted in the autumn sun,

      Withstood the winter cold.


It grew and swelled from springtime on,

       Was reaped in summer's sun –

And its golden grains provide the loaves

     Enjoyed by everyone.


Behold the sunflower’s golden face

    Which heralds autumn days –

With neck outstretched to touch the sun,

     Gilt petals all ablaze.


At harvest time we give our thanks

    And loud our voices raise.

Flour and flowers bedeck our church

    And to God we give Him praise.
