Poem donated by David Garrett L O W C O S T A D V E R T I S I N G F O R A L L As I stand by the gate looking around at the scene I see a patchwork of gardens joined by paths of dark green As men toil and till soil, fresh food for to grow By the sweat of their body and the power of the hoe Sheds of all sizes the landscape adorn Some proud and erect, some old and forlorn Old men and young men join together to fight Against the forces of nature and all her great might. Mice eat the seeds that are put in the ground, While those that they miss the birds will have found, And if quite by chance a plant may mature The rabbits will find it of that you are sure, The men grumble and groan about this abuse, But year after year food they try to produce, Too wet to plant, things are getting behind, Once planted, ground dries, no more rain do we find, Buckets of water to potatoes are fed, Seedlings struggle to survive on scorched dust dry bed, Broad beans ripe to pick go down with the fly Peas shrivel from drought and you just watch them die, Whitefly on the Brussels, immune to the spray, Thank God for the rhubarb I hear someone say, By the end of the summer these battered brave men Will all dig their gardens and start over again, But there is more to allotments than gardening and toil It’s a place to unwind from the world you recoil, A place where you meet men who think as you do Where rewards are plenty though profits are few, Fresh air and sunshine is the bonus they seek When on Sunday they forget all the cares of the week. Now if you feel that some land you would till, Just think of the problems, for the way there needs will. 49 POEM CORNER Allotments To advertise in the next edition - - 07738 024 823
