Laura D. Card was a doctoral student in the University Writing Program at the University of Utah when these poems were published.

The call goes out to England,

“Bring seeds of snowball

and potato,

celery and hedgerow,


as seems you good.”

“We have

5,000 peach seedlings

ready to set out.”

Yet not one rose,

until she coaxed

Californian cuttings

into bud.
