There’s a place of quiet beauty
fragrant and so green
it’s my ever growing garden
spectacular view and scene
A place where time stands still
of mauve and red and white
leaves uncurling, daisies winking
palms dancing in the light
The garden is a treasure trove
of lacy butterfly wing
The smells of lemons and lavender
the unexpected sting
Did God paint this amazing canvas?
the senses to delight
where roses bud and birds call out
a blessed and bountiful sight.
