A grit lined wheelbarrow

'so much depends
a red wheel
glazed with rain
beside the white
chickens.' William Carlos Williams 

A whole house depends on three wheels
on a rusty wheel barrow, lined in grit, 
glove-fitted for the launch of  the season
settling beside a wrinkled, ever green tree

 but much more depends on the aged olive, 
rooted since the begging of time
placing platefuls on the makeshift box turned table.
