Knees to ground, hands are bound*, while soil surrounds
Nature sounds, time is found–to till around!
Seeds are abound, Perennials astound,
Annuals rebound–to work growth’s compound!
Seasons change, while temperatures exchange
Sunlight arrange–to feed what growth remains
Water to rain, foliage to gain, bloom’s aim–
From being cultivation’s caring claim!
Dandelions to impede, wild as weeds
Bugs to intercede, usefulness as bees
Ladybugs and caterpillars to heed–
From having an effect on this degree!
Gardening is work-, gardening has perks-,
Gardening reverts- when the bloom gets nursed!
