This evening brings a preparation for future food
This evening the hoe goes up and down into the soil
This evening shovel goes up and down lifting the soil
Arms show muscle as it propels implements
There’s the heaving as strength and effort are released and the soil turns, awaiting the arrival of the future food
The sprouted heads of the yams got into the holes making it a home till harvest time
When all is covered in soil, a prayer is sent for bountiful harvest
For HE will give rain for the seed which is sown in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous and thanks will be given.
