A Poem by Adriana DiGennaro

We Must Cultivate Our Garden
by Adriana DiGennaro

il faut cultiver notre jardin
says the fool
in her allotted
plot of land
speaking in tongues
only some can understand.
spending time with the wrong man,
down the wrong path,
having had so much to say,
resting on laurels
so that “working in the garden”
becomes picking plants
trampling them
and throwing them

Adriana will be at The Gazebo on August 10, 2009.

The Summer Gazebo Readings feature 4 author/poets each Monday evening in June, July and August, 7 pm at Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, NY. See the links to the right for our schedule and directions. Bring a lawn chair and come on down!

Thanks so much!
