Gardening funeral poem for funeral directors and celebrants

A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.
My poetry is written to be gently uplifting and evocative, reminding the reader or listeners of the loved one or friend’s love of gardening.
My poems have been very well received at both church and crematorium services, by funeral directors and celebrants, and add a very personal accolade.

After the months of winter slumber, snowdrops and
unfurling leaves announce the welcome return of spring,
just visible above the resting grass, the flowers of crocus and
 daffodils, what radiant colour they bring.

Turning the dark earth over, marking the line with string,
carefully sowing the seeds then hoeing the crumbly soil,
waiting for the seedlings to emerge, later harvesting onions,
carrots, salad and runner beans, well worth the earlier toil.

Pruning the thorny gooseberry bushes and removing the
previous year’s growth of slender raspberry canes,
picking strawberries, gooseberries and raspberries, sparkling
with crystal droplets after a recent shower of rain.

When the tops have wilted, digging the potatoes up, leaving
the soil covered crop to dry in the morning sun,
 kale, sprouts, red and green winter cabbages standing proud,
 in orderly rows, remind that autumn has already begun.

Whether pruning, planting seedlings, weeding or watching from
a window on a morning bright, frosty and clear,
the garden’s constantly changing flowers, vegetable, fruit
and wildlife always delight, whatever the time of year.
