I did not plant the sunflower
It grew in the raised garden bed
Towering over the zucchini plants
That give and give well into September
 
I did feed the birds, which means
Supporting the squirrel and chipmunk population
Wearing paths through the grass
Scampering from feeder to garden to woods
 
I built and filled the bed with soil and compost
Planted and tended to the radishes and zucchinis
Allowed the spout to grow into this flower
I did not plant and have always loved
