He was a true earthman

A genuine scion of mother earth

Weather-beaten, brown-skinned

Toiling in the sun,

Garden soil in his fingernails,

Bare-headed, supple-fingered,

Dexterous, rotating wrists 

Tending the garden with paternal care,

Sometimes kneeling, occasionally crouching

The lawn, flower-beds and vegetables;

They were his children

The fruits of his hands.

                                                

Nine months he was the outdoor man

Untiring, beaming with pride

In his Eden.

Under his beloved weeping willow

He keeled over one afternoon

Still and silent, in a foetal position

On a patch of grass he had walked on

Seemingly for an eternity.

A life lived in unalloyed joy 

Man, earth, soil and nature in perfect harmony.
