Quotable #53: Grass

grass_growing_pavement_cracks_l2.jpg

There is no riddle to surpass
The mystery of growing grass,
Which bravely thrusts its tender stalk
Thru tiny cracks along the walk,
And thrives in crannies of the wall,
And in the flower beds grows tall
And grows and grows, till summer’s gone,
On everything except the lawn.

— Curtis Heath, Better Homes and Gardens, Vol. 37, February 1959

    Jack, do you never sleep —
    does the green still run deep in your heart?
    Or will these changing times,
    motorways, powerlines,
    keep us apart?
    Well, I don’t think so —
    I saw some grass growing through the pavements today.
