Garden Of Eden - Poem by Hazel Durham

Sunbeams, with bundles of fun,
Shining, shimmering green quest,
A new nest, in garden of eden's best,
My soul is calm here, even with all, my unsung fears,
Laughter united, like a torchlight showing, how bright it is along this merry way,
Moments of freedom, in abundance every day,
Life is a serenade, with no time to ever fade.



Forever young, riding horses along leafy country lane's,
The intoxicating fertile earth, blending with my deep emotions,
Love is shouting here from the fields, every tree, every dazzling mountain view,
My heart sings a never-ending haunting tune,
My soul rejoicing in the exquisite splendour,
Soaring like a golden eagle, to heights unknown,
I never want to say goodbye, to finding truth at last,
That ain't no lie.



My character is formed here, a lively, bright girl,
Finding new friends, finding me, a new pearl,
Surprise, is everyone loves, how funny I am,
Like a toast of champagne, nothing ever stays the same,
Thank you, for letting the sadness and conflict cease,
Love has been found, so beautifully bound,
I have passed life's test,
In the magnificence of the garden of eden's best.
