Morning in my Garden

In the gentle light of morning
I wade through dew-wet grasses

dragging rake and trowel and clippers
over footstep-flattened passes

Across the frontier of my yard
I daringly pioneer forth,

scout out legions of garden pests
invading roses from the north

I forget awhile those challenges
that make me doubt my worth,

I kneel down on the rock hard ground,
change horizons with spades of earth

Undefeated by foes of weeds
where there is no strength to prove,

I bring to fruition some small dreams
and move the little mountains I can move
