Earthworm Poetry

Grass Clippings - Solving Worm CastsEarthworms are wonderful creatures, simply their casts that are a pain for lawn owners! 

We found this lovely poem about an earthworm and thought we should share it with you on such a wet and miserable day...

An earthworm came calling;
I found him at my front door,
possibly seeking a dry spot;
his home flooded with days of rain.


How does one make a poem about an earthworm?  Yet, he is a wonder. Transforming mountains of kitchen scraps into rich humus for the garden, aerating the soil as he moves about. As I survey my beautiful garden, full of these earthworms, I realize that even the most humble is an important part of the wheel of life.

Thanks to Pat Cean
