Blue Monday: Garden Goddess

Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


Although her arms are broken
And her feet are crumbling fast,
The little garden goddess
Seems to last and last.
 
In every growing season,
Whether summer or in spring,
The little garden goddess
Doesn’t miss a thing.
 
She sees the roses blooming
And a hungry little bird;
She sees tomato hornworms,
Though her eyes are blurred.
 
She keeps watch every morning,
Every midday, every night—
The little garden goddess
Makes sure all’s just right.
