Learning a New Language

_____________________________________

While you’re planting a plant

Have you stopped to ponder

That this plant can’t wander?

What we can do it can’t

Thought its roots run rampant

It will not live yonder.

*

Why did you plant me here

Among these thugs and brutes

Where soil’s bad for my roots

Branches eaten by deer

Blooms hidden by those near

Oh why can’t I uproot?

*

What do plants have to say

About our garden display?
