Garden Poem of the Day

The Anxious Farmer
By Burges Johnson

It was awful long ago 
That I put those seeds around; 
And I guess I ought to know 
When I stuck 'em in the ground.
'Cause I noted down the day 

In a little diary book, — 
It's gotten lost somewhere and 
I don't know where to look.

But I'm certain anyhow 
They've been planted most a week; 
And it must be time by now
For their little sprouts to peek. 
They've been watered every day 
With a very special care, 
And once or twice I've dug 'em up to 
see if they were there.

I fixed the dirt in humps 
Just the way they said I should; 
And I crumbled all the lumps 
Just as finely as I could. 
And I found a nangle-worm 
A-poking up his head, — 
He maybe feeds on seeds and such, 
and so I squished him dead.

A seed ’s so very small, 
And dirt all looks the same; — 
How can they know at all 
The way they ought to aim? 
And so I'm waiting round 
In case of any need; 
A farmer ought to do his best for 
every single seed!
