The Gardner's Spring Assault

gone, gone, gone!


Mary Boyle said...

Fantastic poem, did you write that Barbara.

Cailleach said...

Yes Mary - thanks - it needs a bit of work, but I'm just road testing it for now - it'll be gone in a few days...

Tommaso Gervasutti said...

It has reached an intense ending this poem, very earthy and "soily",
Best wishes, Davide

Cailleach said...

Thanks Davide - others have commented on that too - that's good, I think!

Warmest congraulations - hope you are proud! of yourself you should be! (Not least of all for those lovely kids!)

'Earth has its own smell, a musty humus,
as the whump and slither of a spade sucks up
new sods, whacked quickly to submission, white roots'

this is beautiful - loved the whole poem of course ... but these lines especially.
