STONE WALKWAYS IN THE GARDEN

STONE WALKWAYS IN THE GARDEN

Not flat exactly
but flat enough
for any sensible shoe

Colors, no two the same,
but same enough, as
two cows in a pasture,
to maintain a pastoral theme

Earth’s earliest bubbling set
and glaciers push and slice
plus workman’s choice of fit
enshrines his nameless name

To form from mud and sod
tis the work of God
the work of man to try
to walk upon it all, dry shod
