Gardening

I have to get back out there
For one last tidy round
Before the damp and rain of autumn
Saturates the sodden ground
Tidy up the spread nasturtiums
Cut back the deadened stems
Prepare the garden for the winter
On which its dormancy depends

There’s still a sun trap at the bottom
So I’ll take advantage there
The shorts replaced by long-johns
With the cooling of the air
Firepits replace now loungers
The heat from fire instead of sun
But it won’t be long again until
Another summer is begun
