Poem- Bending the Knee

Bending the Knee

You have to learn to how to bend the knee
to become a gardener.
If you want to plant a flower
you need to open the earth.
And if you want
to remove weeds
you have to start at the ground.
Only a fool tries to weed standing up.
Even the old
get down on their knees
to tend to the needs of soil.
