Subject: The Night before Compost
'Twas the night before compost
and all through the pile
all the creatures were stirring
all the aerobic while.
Their feedstocks were layered=20
into the pile with care
In hopes that bacteria soon would grow there.
The moisture was added, till the good stuff was glistening,
to the wrung out sponge dampness (is everyone listening?)
The brown stuff was measured, the green stuff was too
The good C/N ratio for a fine microbe stew
The leaves were piled on, all shredded and humid
While their decomposition anticipatedly loomed
On Acer, On Quercus, On Salix, On Elmus!
Fraxinus and Fagus,On Prunus and Pinus!
So top off your bins, to the top of their walls
And rot away, rot away, to fine humus all!!!
Merry Christmas and Good Composting,
Frank Teuton and family
