IN SEASON


Rain is falling on my garden;
See buds peeping from the ground?
Sunlight, falling on my garden,
Dressed it in a gorgeous gown.
Leaves are falling on my garden;
See them softly fluttering down?
Snow is falling on my garden;
Great white flakes of snowy down.
Love is falling on my garden
As the seasons turn around.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this poem, I'm a gardener myself. I feel the longing to be in the soil, churning, planting seeds, tending to them as they grow. Your poem makes me feel like there is beauty year round, no matter what the season.
    Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
