Sleeping Eden

My garden is my Eden

My own paradise, I made

Filled with borage and buttercups

A grand floral parade

Dog rose and hornbeam, fig, pear and sweet pea

Hawthorn, ash and bramble, there will be treats for me

Bumblebees love their honey

They made from this land here

Golden delicious syrup, they make it every year

Hedgehog, pigeon, frog and toad, make their homes right here

As robins, chickadees and crows eat without a fear

My lovely little haven, I toiled hard to keep

But it has been abandoned and now it’s put to sleep

Maybe someday I’ll make another

Maybe someday near or far

I will grow another Eden and writes its memoir
