The Sower

A farmer went into his field
Sowing, expecting bounteous yield,
And as he cast the seed around
It fell on different types of ground.

Some fell upon the hardened ground,
On solid rock, where earth’s not found,
Fowls of the air, plucked it away
Before the passing of the day.

Some others fell on shallow earth
And died soon after seeds gave birth.
For meager depth could not sustain
Through scorching days, till needed rain.
