Blades

Is there something about grass Close-clipped On lawns and playing fields That’s blithely overlooked? Its qualities seem simply put: Offsetting herbaceous borders And yielding underfoot. Or is every blade like everyone Quite different from up-close Unique and undervalued Unsung and lachrymose? SW, 2019

I have always loved the smell of new-mown grass, Steve but I shall be even more appreciative of its qualities having read your interesting and enjoyable poem! Great surname too!!

Thank you Wendy. Yes, I think the smell of new-mown grass was the inspiration but didn’t make the poem!
