mulch the deepest darkest richest soil

and let it burst the planted seeds

to produce the lightest brightest flowers

to wave amid the hard loam for our living

every mineral deva in attendance

strengthens the foundation

as every vegetable deva dances

the various forms of life to fruition

and we who are pale and wasted

amid this common glory

see nothing but the wind-whipped flowers

bending for their lives against the gale

and await our fall to mulch

the deepest darkest richest soil
