Poetry

Pecans

by Gregg Oakley

**

Between the soil, tree and wind,

I have been given a job to do.

No one else seems interested

As I walk around in the street,

Picking up only what I’ve been given.

**

A boisterous wind blew and blew,

Just like a young boy shaking the tree

Down come the pecans.

**

We have been given the earth

And the earth provides for us,

A perpetual feast.
