Forestall

It’s a quadrille Monday at the Poet’s Pub, #89 in fact, and Merril has served up the word set. Despite some initial technical difficulties I am now all set with these 44 words.

 

Forestall

Seed potatoes and onion sets

his planting now mostly these

come fall he’ll gather butternuts

apple drops from straggly trees.

His old horse predeceased him

hamed collar hangs near the plow

wonders how he’ll get the wood in

to keep winter fires burning now.
