For Those of You

For Those of You

For those of you who have forgotten
that I have a castle sitting
just outside the garden hedge,
here is a reminder.
All that separates me
from the castle grounds is a hedge
which consists of rose bushes, and a dry moat.
My hands and bare arms are scratched and torn,
bleeding and punctured by the pricks
of a thousand thorns.
This is the time of year when I prune my roses
for a second and third flush;.
Being unable to work while wearing gauntlets,
I must suffer the consequences.
