#TenderTuesday . . . My garden is a pleasant place

My garden is a pleasant place
Of sun glory and leaf grace.
There is an ancient cherry tree
Where yellow warblers sing to me,
And an old grape arbor, where
A robin builds her nest, and there
Above the lima beans and peas
She croons her little melodies,
Her blue eggs hidden in the green
Fastness of that leafy screen.
Here are striped zinnias that bees
Fly far to visit,; and sweet peas,
Like little butterflies newborn,
And over by the tasselled corn
Are sunflowers and hollyhocks,
And pink and yellow four-o’clocks.
Here are hummingbird that come
To seek the tall delphinium-
Songless bird and scentless flower
Communing in a golden hour.

  1. and while you sit there watching the bee, roam from plant to plant, you wonder how it hovers and lands gently on a delicate flower, sit, and dine on the pollen, lift again effortlessly, and you sigh, only God could make this possible, and then a tear forms in your eye, mother nature, how at times we mistreated you, loved your post and the words, thanks
