The morning mower
runs back and forth,
leaving deep furrows
in every brow.
I only hope
he knows his place,
and stays within
his bounds, somehow.
So intent is he
upon his task,
he sees every
blade of grass.
And for all our sakes,
I trust he never
makes mistakes,
cutting too close.
waking those
who sleep so still,
beneath each curve
and rolling hill.
