A Day In The Garden - Poem by Patricia Gale

Luscious greenery growing strong
Tending and nurturing with much care
Before the harvest would be fair
Next trip it will require a bucket to be brought along

Blossoms of golden sun
Vines racing to reach and stretch
A pail of water I must fetch
Pull a weed or two before I am done

Sweet taste of homegrown
Nothing better, love from my hands
Growing stronger my dreams and plans
From a small seed you were sown

From a distance I can see
Mr. Hopper, my friendly garden buddy
Jumping past looking kind of muddy
We exchange hellos and he spies a bug that zips by

Must be hopping along to catch his dinner
Have a wonderful day and eat hardy
Protect our garden and don’t forget about the garden party
The day we show our pride, the big winner

Mrs. Robin lands near
She’s searching in the fresh turned soil
Looking like the character by Arthur Conan Doyle
She finds her clue and sings a cheer

The beauty and the peace
Calloused hands but hopeful heart
An over flowing garden cart
A joy filled tasty feast

    Patricia, I wish I had green fingers that would allow everything I plant to grow. Sadly I haven't and have look from afar at everyone else's garden fair. Beautiful and calm read. Top marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.

    You use the imagery well to express your thoughts and feelings. The feeling I have after reading this poem is that all's right with the world. A day in the garden would do that. Nice place to be. (Report) Reply
