It’s Designed to Break Your Heart

by A. Bartlett Giamatti

It's designed to break your heart.
The game begins in the spring,
when everything is new again,
and it blossoms in the summer,
filling the afternoons and evenings,
and then as soon as the chill rains come,
it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

As featured on
The Daily Gardener podcast:

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
