Manure


The rotting garden,
Bare across the winter months,
Sleeps alive –

Fortitude is rumbling ‘mongst Manure
Giving character,
Bringing in the farm –
Fecundity in faeces!

We talk about consistency of shit –
We dig it in –
We love it –

Gives the element of pride,
For we are green
And dreaming evermore
Of yet another bulging plot.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
