Mulch Heap, Receive

V xxxiv

Mulch heap, receive this little stem--
I, with the harvest god, condemn
white worms who clip buds. Take, from her
not all pale color: small sulphur

of Glory Lily. Swelling roots
supported, barely, six week shoots,
so leave intact her tender hue
she stole so little food from you!
