Planting Time

by Esther Thornburg
(Cantril, Iowa, USA)

Time to arrange
A plant exchange.

From our garden to yours
Give the plants a tour.

Bring a plant
And take a plant.

Share the extra seeds.
Just what a friend needs.

Each plant a story tells.
A potted herb seasons well.

A tiny native seedling tree,
Escaped the mower, lives free.

From along the rivers shore,
Came the elegant sycamore.

Today there is a need
For a Johnny Appleseed.
