A garden in a punnet
Brought all the way from my garden in Düsseldorf.
Forget-me-Nots. They flourished once last year
Before being eaten up by field mice on the balcony.
Forget-me-Nots. They flourished in Professor Friedrich’s garten.
When Frau Friedrich gave me seeds in the nineties.
Forget-me-Nots. They flourished in my garden all these years.
And they did well when they arrived in late July.
Forget-me-Nots. They did well in August until that downpour.
All drown. But wait. Not all.
