A Stone Wall

I always wanted
a high wall
to ring my garden
fieldstone perhaps
rough and granite
but climbable
tall enough
to keep the world out
but wide enough
to sprinkle seeds on
for the buntings
on their long journey
from equator
to Arctic
and strong enough
to let me bounce
the little green ball
my dog loves to chase.
