DIY Wall (For Karl)

My best work in the garden

is my wall

a tower to heaven; a bridge of wood; a magic stronghold

This thing of beauty grew from the ground

my hands and tools shaped its form,

digging, sleepers, concrete and screws

a spirit level and crushed stone

foundation strong and true –

measuring, planning and finished – a garden feature

proud and perfect. Made by ME!
