Yield

The clay from which spring stems
is an earthy kind of soil
that nourishes the vibrant gems
whose heady scents we prize
enough to trade some toil
ensuring they will rise

but even if all gardens fail
to garner any blooms
that growing urge won’t quite curtail
the seasonal ascent
which ultimately looms
for those whose time is spent.

Hello Bob,

Nice concept! Nice lines:
"is an earthy kind of soil
that nourishes the vibrant gems"

Good work done!
