Right before I go to bed
I do my gardening “in my head”
I plan a plot and take up grass
I double dig and plant en masse
I stake perennials and fertilize
Before the plants are too outsized
I train and tie unruly vines
I trim the beds in perfect lines
Compost is spread, I plant the seeds
I know just what my garden needs
I fall asleep with a perfect view
A finished garden, nothing to do
Morning comes…
and time to work
I think I’ll read a gardening book
