Written 00/2009

glazing landscape
ground bare
plants cringe

sunless days
add glum
February repeats
lifeless mood

March mopes
rejects sun
cold rain
depriving spring

April expecting
blustery storms
shade sun
once more

May pauses
sun lapsed
constant drizzle
plants shiver

stunned seedling
postpone growth
bees dormant
dejected gardener

June pussy-foots
sun slow
to kindle
expectations dull

July warms
slowly emerging
chilled plants
bees busy

August sun
vegetables struggle
gaining on
lost summer

October tomatoes?
