It so needed a big chop didn't it? What a difference. So much difference it inspired my verse for today.
Bye Bye Big Huge Hedge
Today I had my hedges chopped
a load of foliage cut and dropped
It had grown very high
looking at it made me sigh
So now it's been minced into little pieces
a mound in the truck forever increases
It's then driven away
goodbye and good riddance I say
Now my garden is light
my hedge had grown with all its might
Enclosing us within
Darkness we were living in
But now I'll have my trimmers at the ready
step ladders I'll have to keep steady
I'll try not to fall
While aiming to keep it all small
Bye bye huge big hedge
and hello to my new pledge
Twenty foot you are no longer
six is a bit more of a wonder
So there it will stay
If I have to measure it every day
A new friend has become mine
a ball of heat they call sunshine
Thanks for reading. Catch you back here tomorrow for Free from Friday.
