Winter Slumber

Winter slumber

While vines slumber in the winter sun
Unaware of footsteps along the rows
of the grower tending canes along the run
between the days where the rainfall flows

With clips and ties and shears and saw
the grower works the whole day long
to prune the vines and help ensure
that vines emerge both clean and strong

To grow again, another year
in sun and rain and wind and hail
the grower frets with doubts and fears
that this years’ crop could pass or fail

Until the harvest is complete
and bins of fruit are trucked away
and coffers are again replete
and sunlight heralds a new day.
