The Gardener

I was well equipped

to wade through mud

to prune and snip,

ready to water. when dry

and this year has been dry,

too dry

also too wet

and windy

so the harvest was scant

and now it’s over,

now it’s the golden time,

time to celebrate the work 

time to celebrate the light

before the long dark rest

to come

to make ready

for the new light.
