Her Garden

    Her Garden

    Her Garden


    You can’t remember

    For you were but a boy

    I spoke your name in whispers

    In an overgrown garden

    I so often enjoyed


    There were dandelions and wild flowers

    Overgrown rose bushes

    Stone made into pillars

    And an archway made of wire


    There were Japanese maple trees

    pine needles and dried up leaves

    There were dogwood bushes

    All protecting and encompassing me


    As I sang out a tune

    Talked to the birds

    Played with the cats

    Twirling and skipping

    Does it sound absurd?


    Not to a little girl

    Who frequented a garden

    So long ago

    Where all of her daydreams and wishes

    Would grow


    The days and years would pass

    In the mind of the girl

    The garden always would grow

    Into a dream come true


    The whispers and messages

    Sent into the air

    Brought her to the boy

    She once knew


    He was the one

    She lay her heart at rest

    For knowing his heart to be true



    Separated by circumstances

    A once-in-a-lifetime chance

    She returned to the garden

    Barely recognizable

    Though she knew it was her garden


    She stood in the Archway

    Bringing wishes and whispers

    Letting his heart know

    It was true

    There would be no other love

    That would ever do

    The love that grew

    In her garden

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
