Come and see the garden
let’s leave our cares for awhile
we’ll float above the blades of grass
see the flowers through fairy eyes
Come let us smell the roses
rising above their thorns
let us kiss the velvet petals
still wet with the mist of dawn.
Can you see the Clematis
poised on her delicate vines
twirling round and round the arbor
as she reaches for the skies.
Shhh…. let’s tiptoe around the lilies
they are still fast asleep
they’ll open their sleepy eyes
at the height of summer’s heat.
The peonies are yonder
beyond the dancing daisies’ place
if we follow the scented air
we won’t miss their ruffled faces.
Let us pause for a moment
scoop the spent petals in our hands
give them our one last caress
before we lay them on the ground.
From here we’ll proceed
to see the tomatoes in their beds
growing with the basil
and peppers and other herbs.
We can chase some butterflies
as we go our merry way
we’ll flit among the buttercups
bobbing in the breeze of May.
Beneath the Mock Orange boughs
we will have our rest
while listening to the cheerful tunes
of the Sparrows in their nest.
