YOUR PLANT IN MY GARDEN
Suddenly the words came at last
'Would you lend me your garden this season?'
Your face lit up with surprise
'I want no seeds on them but your plant will I water'
Oh what a terrible answer
At such perfect hour?
Curiosity may kill a cat
But the truth its heart had seeked
I bet it did find
A castle filled with dreams unattained
You grab the water kettle
And head straight for my garden
Water in hand,
Plant in another,
With selective myopia
I try to stop you from stepping on it
And yet I stopped
For all I want is to have you water the plant in my garden
