Poem – Sparrows



Sitting in my garden

two sparrows flew by barely clipping my nose

I almost rose

below resting on my freshly de-crisped newspaper

was –

a gift

left by two travellers in a world of light and air

I touched the gift and had to stare

five fragile dry blades of grass

I was aghast

perfect nesting material

yet it was lightly dropped in my lap

two travellers saying hello and wishing me well

In a world often fiiled with endless pell mell…

Two travellers, wishing us all well.

Lawns and how to save money time and the planet!

Mow your lawn 1 to 3 feet around the edge – let the rest of the lawn grow into a

meadow  – before the summer starts mow lawn down, throw wild flower seeds

in the meadow area , then sit back and watch your meadow grow!

Advantages :

Less gas used,      ( moolah! for you)

less pollution from mower,       (Earth! happy)

less noise pollution,        (Peace in your neighborhood!)

Sweet scented flowers mixed with tall grasses make for an inviting front yard!!!
