To Mount A Scarecrow

Rating: 5.0
It was a sunlit autumn, dying
Foliage was not raked for days,
Bark was gnawn at, soup was tasteless,
Scarecrows had been lumbered away

Amidst the harvest, thriven and orange
Did there hang, a scarecrow, stark
Though this one, not in effigy

Great first stanza....love the surprising line soup was tasteless. But.... You lost me at thriven? It's the archaic past perfect form for thrive, no longer used in modern English, so it really doesn't fit? Not sure I get it?

With straw hanging off his head. He tips his hat you. As a thanks for a fantastic view. With a body given it's due. Similarities bore. And this is what of the scarecrow I truly adore. Great Poem, Man.
