THE GARDEN


The garden is a magic place
All full of scent and sound
Summer has enchanted it
And drawn a circle round.

The bees and hummingbirds have come
The air is filled with wings -
Finches, robins, larks and wrens
Here everybody sings!

The flowers are drenched with sun and rain
And they are singing, too
A symphony of color-blend
Beneath a cloak of blue.

At night the moon and the stars gleam down
The garden's fairyland
A world of fantasy and dreams
In summer's gentle hand.

  2. beautiful

    ok, you gotta click on a square on the top to your right....

    only to get a full screen or a down the bottom,
    you see the minus or the plus sign
    the minus is small
    and the plus is big.
