Recipe For Green

“Recipe For Green”  by Jan Yolen

Take one seed,

Take one plot
Of deep, dark earth.
(But not a lot.)

Dig a bit,
Leave a while.
(More than a minute,
Less than a mile.)

Take some rain,

Take some sun;


Now your work is
almost done.

Up from under,

Out from in,

Look out,
Sprout,

Time to begin.

    Great idea you had!
