She to Me

She told me I

‘Smelled like the Earth’

I thought I was little of worth;

I had worked on the sod,

digging this,

giving that patch a prod,

and now I felt

particularly odd.

So, I had a shower,

soaked and washed for an hour

(my finest)

until I was gleaming like new;

the impact was such,

I was clean to the touch,

and the comment was,

‘Where’ve you bin,

don’t you know

that there’s gardening to do?’
