I Walked in the Garden of Life


I walked in the Garden of Life,
And at first didn't know,
Which way to go.
I went through lush flower forests.


I ran forth to see the front edge.
I ran back to see the other.
I ran through the flowers even farther.
I couldn't find the direction.


I couldn't find the shape,
Or the garden's delivery.
This garden did not give me anything.
There was no sound, no ring.


I stopped running through,
This garden I never knew.
It did not know me too.
I stopped until.

I couldn't get out of this garden that was perfectly still.

    Walking through the garden of life is something we all must do. And we all will stumble. But keep on trying. good write (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
