Earth and loam

by Jem Croucher
I laid down several barrowfulls
of mulch upon the ground
covering the remaining grass
that's evident around
Not 'cos we don't like it
but on an allotment it's a pain
as every time we go there
it's strimming time again

And then I planted lavenders
because it seemed the thing to do
and with that fragrance come the summer
more good vibes will accrue
Then with this work my hands had done
with fruits of labour shown
I sat a while with Badger beer
to breathe in earth and loam
