This Land

This land has know the plough
The cutting of hard ground
The removal of rocks and stones
The pulling up of alien weeds

This land has known the seed
The growing down of roots
The hope of fruit
The promised future will soon manifest

But the rain…

It has been so long
This land is dry
This land is thirsty
This land is hungry

The plough and the seed have been necessary
Rain cannot fall on hard, empty ground

But seed needs more than good soil
It needs something from above
