A keeper

A keeper

A good keeper
Tends the garden
To make fertile
The soil reserved

When weeds invade
And pests attack
They are repelled
By hands steadfast

Those plants chosen
Will be pampered
And will flourish
In the garden

Yet they also
Must be wary
Lest they encroach
On their neighbors

For the keepers
Hands will uproot
Those that excel
Past their limits

For the keeper
Keeps plants restrained
In their richness
And their safety
