The Work of Her that went,
The Toil of Fellows done —
In Ovens green our Mother bakes,
By Fires of the Sun.

  2. Racoon Mere says:

    Now, in Winter, Nature doesn’t seem to work anymore.
    But what a great work has Nature accomplished!
    – From spring to fall, it was able to wind up as much work as numerous men;
    It is incredible how much food it was able to produce from grass, from trees!
    Yes, her working power is just unbelievable!
    For all the warm seasons, she bakes for us like a mother in her “Ovens green”
    Helped by the Sun who kindles her fire.
