Wishing on Stars

With hope I watch and wait
to see which stars become pumpkins
ripe as the harvest moon.
Most blossoms will come to nothing
though I do my best to care:
weeding, watering in drought,
feeding with composted soil.
But mostly I just hope,
hope and wait, for I am only a gardener, and
can no more make a pumpkin than a rising moon.
