Saturday’s Mix – 12 August 2017 – Our Garden

All winter long the garden is cold and bare
With the coming of spring, everywhere is lovely
Trees unfold their leaves, flowers bloom with flair
Apples blossom, all white and pure with such beauty
And the smell of wonderful rain and freshly cut grass
Don’t forget the symphony of spring with birds singing
The spring peepers chirping call chorus with such class
The dandelions, lilacs, tulips, hyacinths, all blooming

This used to be our garden
Playing hide and seek
We ran, spun and had fun
That gate used to creak

We were loud and
Very rambunctious
Outside until we’re tanned
Running till we’re breathless

The sunflowers by the fence
They were our witness
We engaged in pretence
Like we’re ageless

They came every year
Just as we grew up fast
Gave us some cheer
The world is vast

Until the dark mist
Swallowed you up
You’re surely missed
Sad for the breakup

  1. Ah, thank you for this. This makes me want to picture our garden back home and post to the world. We don’t have snow but have a cattle house 🙂 it is empty now
