Poem: Sustainable Agriculture
As the sun shines and the wind blows,
Flowers open and insects beckon closer
To the sweet and irresistible smell,
They come singing and visiting the organic garden.
Did you see the worms crawling?
Waggling all around,
Touching this, touching that, in the soil so dark, so black and mysterious,
Amongst the roots of sturdy green and healthy plants.
The water drips in everyday,
Just enough to quench the thirst of a well-spaced plant,
Top dressed with composted animal droppings,
That is healthy to plant and environment.
The healthy harvest gonna be bumper.
Taste irresistible in all the tongue.
In all tables they ask "a little more please" and then they gonna ask "where did it came from?"
It came from organic farming!
