The Bring and Buy Sale.
There were plants that feed us,
Plants that cheer us',
Plants that puzzle how they've grown.
Plants quite rampant.
Plants quite fragrant.
Plants quite easy and well known.
Tempting outdoor bric-a-brac,
Books crammed full of gardening facts
Where seeds of science are sown.
They dug deep into their funds
With sturdy growers' hands
To buy some plant that's different from their own.
And from each weathered visage
Shone the happy giver's message,
That good gardening is the soil that sets the tone.
