The Harvest Tin!


Most of us try to do our ‘bit’, however small, to help others. Most of the time what we do goes un-noticed, but that’s just the way of the world. This makes those times you are thanked just a little more special. Yesterday morning I had a wonderful surprise…

Yesterday morning by the granary door,
I found a bright tin sat upon the floor,
The contents explained by a note on the lid,
To thank me so much for something I did!
Not being used to quite so much praise,
I opened the lid in rather a daze!
And there inside, to my day make,
An eye watering, beautiful, magnificent cake!
I couldn’t wait to just have a taste,
Despite the tight jeans encircling my waist!
A slice with my coffee, a slice with my lunch,
(I managed to share with the harvesting bunch!)
So thanks to you two for what was under that lid,
You’re welcome anytime, to repeat what you did!
