A horticultural lesson





I have a friend
who
in a moment of culinary exuberance
planted a herb garden
but
impatient to sample this fragrant delight
and
lacking in horticultural experience
chose
the hottest afternoon of the year
to cultivate this interest
then
forgetting to water those precious seedlings
despaired
upon discovering every one limp and dying
perhaps
before planting he might have meditated on
the age-old adage
that
thyme wilts for Norman
