chauncey bee gardener

 | |

all things bright and beautiul

all creatures large and small

all things wise and wonderful

the lord god made them all

(chauncey is always making up ditties)

in the seventies chauncey loved 'grass roots' and 'earth garden'

and became acquainted with the wry humour and superior intellect of bill mollison

and every spring thereafter he dreamt about actually doing something with seeds

but september turned into october and november and december every single year without fail

but he was taught well

now he exercises his taut tendons and harvests his dreams

chauncey likes animals

he finds them quite predictable

and they accept contentment

no questions asked

they are affectionate

except at food time

when they are gutses

chauncey says that a fruit tree blossom is a heaven scent

and bee is his second name
