How Seed Catalog Orders are Born


It’s 8:30 a.m

Just entered the loo,

Sat on the pot

with nothing to do

but my morning routine,

if you know what I mean

And stare mindlessly at a few magazines,

Catalogues, more catalogues,

Brochures and the like,

Even a few renegade mags about bikes

Colorful ads, lovely flowers, vacations, and seeds,

Fine somethings or others that everyone needs.

But back to those seeds they look so appealing

They make me forget the heat this winter’s been stealing.

I can almost taste those sweet peas popped fresh from the pod

Maybe I’ll buy some new kind of corn on the cob.

That sweet corn on the grill with butter and salt and pepper and parm .

Those tomatoes to die for that came fresh from the farm.

The basil, Spicy Globe, it’s fragrance so fine.

I wish spring was here….if only I could fast forward winter time.
