The forecast had been spot on

Just enough

To cover a scattering of rooftops

With thin strips for chimney stacks

And telephone poles

Enough too

To ensure

That for a few short hours

My garden would look exactly

Like those of my neighbours

An d despite the years of inactivity

And neglect

I could now take my place

Among the most diligent

And capable horticulturists

In the locality
