Growing spinach-infertile soil

Never was very good
at knowing when to wear a hat
or not to wear a coat;
You can't see the wind,
I guess
that makes it hard to tell
when the sun might be hiding something
(even on cloudless days).
The breeze must hide around dusty corners,
and behind the pale early spring leaves,
they whisper
You can always listen for them
whispering to one another.
Leaves were never very good
at keeping secrets.
