2 A WATERING RHYME Early in the morning, Or the evening hour, Are the times to waterEvery kind of flower.Watering at noonday,When the sun is high,Doesn’t help the flowers,Only makes them die
3 Also, when you water,Water at the roots;Flowers keep their mouths whereWe should wear our boots.Soak the earth around them,Then through all the heatThe flowers will have waterFor their thirsty ‘feet’!
4 SUMMARY OF THE POEMThe poet tells us that early morning and evening times are the best to water any kind of flowers. During the midday, watering won’t help. Instead flowers would die due to it. He further says that we should water at the roots of flowers because their mouths lie in roots, where we stand wearing boots. He also advises that we should soak the piece of soil around the roots. In this way, the flowers will get water even during the hot day.
