Earth's Tribute - Poem by John Bannister Tabb

First the grain, and then the blade-
The one destroyed, the other made;
Then stalk and blossom, and again
The gold of newly minted grain.

So Life, by Death the reaper cast
To earth, again shall rise at last;
For 't is the service of the sod
To render God the things of God.
