Patty Planted a Pepper

Patty purchased a pepper

And started a seed in a pot.

And it grew a barren plant

In her urban vegetable spot.

Remember well the front yard 

Vegetable gardens of the last world war.

Reach back to produce a crop

A hundred thirty

Times what was planted.

Reach back for good seed.

And learn to harvest

For prolific capability.

Get smart, and learn the art

Of urban gardening.

“O Master of the Garden,
O my sun and rain and dew,
Come quickly.”

  1. Hellen Hoyt, “The Garden.”
