Sweet Dew Grass

By Chloe Boyd ’23

I am the sweet dew grass that you keep in your yard

lovely and sugary

and even though you try to cut me to perfection

I

always

grow

back

always staying wild

even if you’re constantly cutting me down

to be what you want me to be

you can’t cut my roots

or I wouldn’t be pretty

so you’re stuck

with beautiful, wild me

never quite what you want me to be

I remain, young and free
