I have dreams of having a garden
unfortunately I have a black thumb
And as I age, I try to grow greener
but never grow more than a crumb
or two of corn or a rather small helping of peas
I talk to my plants - I do! -
and I pray to God, "Please,
won't you bless my potatoes
or do something with them?" I say.
"Lord, Help this garden
to grow a gardener someday."
