The Parsley Plot

She sows a whole row every year,
tiny black seeds that sprout and spring up
into a verdant herb for cooking and grazing,
into a lush hedge for garden fairies,
into a verdant pasture for caterpillars.
She plants plenty of parsley
to share with striped and spotted larvae
of green, black, and yellow,
because this sublime vegetation
shelters a nursery for Swallowtails.
