chant Forgotten Children's Songs

So I recently found a song from my childhood and wish to share it. Feel free to do the same.

Michaelmas Daisies

Michaelmas daisies purple in the border,
big fat leeks all standing up in order.
Giant marrows winning every prize,
Bubbling jars of elderberry wine.

Fruits are bottled, others in the deep-freeze,
Silken poppies blushing in the cornfields.
DON'T BRING MUDDY BOOTS INTO THE HALL,
Golden Onions hanging on a wall.

It's harvest time,
Harvest time again.
Harvest time,
Give thanks for sun and rain.

A time to take
and a time to give
Harvest time, it's the time to live

At harvest time.....
Mellow, fruitful harvest time.


We used to sing around harvest time and it was one of my favourites. :-)

Hey, J: do you think you could find video of someone performing this, or maybe just sheet music for it? I have no idea of the tune, so either of those would help.
