Security

The big elm in the back yard

would deposit colour and crunch

in a pile we made on the lawn

The night crawlers would slide

from beneath our bare feet

and be bait next day at dawn

The sun in a haze

faded early those days

as Summer too soon was gone

The canning intense of the bounty

we wrought with the sweat

expended through Summers song

Secure in abundance

from work in the dirt

to keep us all Winter long
