The joy of tending to the soil

of seeing the life bud anew,

is beauteous and worth the toil

Even if only a single plant I grew.


This plant did grow strong

overtaking its fellows, its fruits did prosper.

Its offspring knew where to belong

taking all the nutrients they could muster.


Now this plant can own the garden

Left alone, it dominates all the rest

If unchecked it will only darken

the garden that I wish blessed.


So passed the plant that overwhelmed

my whole garden, taking all

leaving none, it is now culled

devastated, I went back to that weird plant stall.
