The Lotty

by Jem Croucher

The Lotty’s looking wild this year
we haven’t been there much
Lockdown saw to most of that
but we’ve still kept in touch

Emily’s been there more than us
and kept it in some shape
but living several miles away
it’s quite a trip to make

So long grass meadow is the norm
with wood chip in between
coupled with a lovely pond
the best we’ve ever seen

The sage and all the lavender
with fruit bushes have born
a harvest to be grateful for
whilst the weather has been warm

But as with all experiments
and a woeful lack of rain
some things have not fared quite so well
which really is a shame

Still, the Lotty’s looking lovely
and I’m pleased it’s there to share
as there’s always other stuff to grow
whenever we are there

So we might find a root crop
or some vegetables that need
less water there to prosper
when we’re not around to feed

Because we will keep on coming
and we’ll always lend a hand
as the Lotty is quite special
and our own small plot of land
