Who gave the name Sprout to the humble Sprout?
I stand humbled and take my hat off.
Well done that Belgian man from Brussels
For your deep-rooted horticultural wisdom!
Spot on where your Cruciferae are concerned.
Last week smugly surveying my handiwork,
Assorted array of seeds nestling and tucked into
Inviting compost-filled seed ” beds”/ trays,
Which little head is going to awaken first,
Gleefully push the covers off to reveal
Two Spring green cotyledons arising
You got it.
The Sprout was the first to sprout.
No longer can the humble Sprout be deemed “humble.”
In fact, that humble Sprout has just taught me…
A HUGE lesson in Humility.
He wasn’t a Sprout at all!
And after waxing lyrical for all these lines,
I bow my head and re-ponder these thoughts…
Never ever take for granted,
Never ever assume,
‘Cos you just never ever know!
All will be revealed in the fullness of time,
As was this glorious morning
And leaves unfurled, a solitary specimen.
