Garden


Garden

I sat there and observed
(As I watch guests here)
Flowers everywhere
The fetus was the bud
Then baby with smile
Out of age when they come
Beauty, attraction and laughter
Then mid-age, stable
And older is wrinkled
In skin and in shape
Then old ones in waiting
For the trip
And the dead
(Spread like ashes)

In each one a lesson
Unaware
Full of hope
Filled with joy, playful
Thinking hard
And waiting for the death to arrive
New birth

How lovely are gardens

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
