They watch and offer prayers.
They spy the seedlings' start - the green shoots that appear.
They warm the veg to grow before the sun takes up the reins. They keep the water when droplets fill their hats & once rain is done, drip feed the saplings' thirst.
They keep the growing safe. They worship the green as growth enables leaves to bare the blossoms to yield the fruit.
The scarecrows praise the plants as harvest is surely here and winter takes pleasure as man takes all.
The scarecrows keep the soil safe for man to toil again.
