A cracking hacking

by Jem Croucher

In the garden today
I went wild with the shears
chopping back all the growth
that remained from last year

I chopped and I hacked
with a clip and a prune
as new shoots are forming
for new growth quite soon

Behind me the yellow
Forsythia started
an abundance of colour
from last year departed

So I thought time was right
to get out there and trim
before the Spring starts
with a smile and a grin

And when I had finished
and pondered it sighted
the garden looked great
and I was delighted
