dirt is to dig



it’s spring! i need to dig in dirt
worm’s work brings happiness
while birds and bees MAY flirt

oh spring! i need to dig in dirt
even if knees might hurt and
fingernails witness a mess

let’s sing! i need to dig in dirt
worm’s work brings happiness


Yes, I like to dig in the dirt. Worms make me happy because they enrich the soil. Everyone should have a little plot of land or a pot of dirt to dig in. Gardening is an elemental activity, part of our DNA code; our calling to work the ground and take care of the earth. Photo taken by me with one hand, holding favorite garden trowel with other 🙂

    Dirt is a farm girl’s best friend. Love your poem.

    Oh yes I agree. Dirt is wonderful to feel and to smell after the rain.

    There is something calming about digging in the dirt.

    The double meaning of the birds & bees line is just too, too good 🙂 Nice bit of poetry, Lynn!
