Compost Poetry

Post  llama momma on 1/4/2012, 8:27 pm

For those who love composting and enjoy a wicked sense of humor!
Enjoy! LM

Compost Yourself!


These are the words to a song written by Lee Hays, a member of the Weavers, a folk group who sang in the 1940's and 50's and were blacklisted during the McCarthy era because of their "unAmerican" ideas.

If I should die before I wake,
All my bones and sinew take;
Put me in the compost pile,
And decompose me for a while.

Wind, water, rain will have their way,
Returning me to common clay!
All that I am will feed the trees,
and little fishes in the seas.

On radishes and corn you munch--
You might be having me for lunch!
And then excrete me with a grin--
Chortling, "There goes Lee again!!"

Very cute, LM.

When my Mom passed away, many years ago, she chose to be creamated. Her final request was to have her ashes "thrown into the garden, where I will do some good". I have to admit, I had issues thinking about tomato plants growing up through Mom, so we placed her ashes in a wildflower garden in a remote area that would probably never see construction.
