Veggies from another time
Once in orange clay pots grown
A supermarket for my home:
Cherry tomatoes on the vine
Spitting juice, all warm and fine;
Basil with its fragrance sweet;
Purple eggplant full of meat;
Small zucchini's yellow flowers
Grow up soon, I count the hours.
Alas for me, these plants are gone.
Empty pots stand all alone.
All that care has gone to waste.
My garden I no longer taste.
