Hyme for the Harvest

 from the Shih Ching (The Book of Songs)

Grant that this year abundant harvest reign,

And be our granaries piled with rice and grain.

Let sheaves in myriads and in millions fill our barns.

From these sweet wine we will distil,

To pour as solemn offerings at the shrine of those, who, passed away, are now divine;

The sainted sires and mothers of our line.

Pleased with such sacrifices may they bestow unnumbered blessings on the folk below.

One thought on “Hyme for the Harvest

  1. Another great post Huw. I have heard this song around the place but never really properly listened before, it’s really magical I think I love it. Merry Autumn Equinox/Mabon from New Zealand, and a happy Spring Equinox where you are :)
