Back of the Bread

by Peter Christian Lukin, 1944

Back of the bread is the snowy flour
Back of the flour is the mill.
Back of the mill the growing wheat
Nods on the breezy hill;
Over the wheat is the flowing sun
Ripening the heart of the grain
Above the sun is the gracious God,
Sending the sunlight and rain.
