Grandpa's Secret Orchard - Poem by Dulakshi Wakista

Cherries are blooming after cold winter
Chirping birds awaken my Grandpa
Comes outside to see his lovely children
Considers his orchard as his nursery

Cherries sparkling like crimson stones
Cheerfully dancing with Rosemary
Camellia Chrysanthemum mixed with
Chamomile spread pure sweet scent

Creeping- Phlox Candytuft
Colourfully outlined the orchard
Collie Chinchilla Coupari
Cymric and Cyprus wagging their tails

Caspian and Campolina asking to play
Caring and loving him
Crystal château glittering like a snowball
Cool mist covered his orchard

Cosmos beautifully decorated his castle
Clementines squeezed to make a drink
Clapping Grandpa sipped the drink
Cheesy cutlets and crispy salads enjoyed

Cherry orchard opens in the morning
Closes in the evening
Cannot go inside without him
Cannot see without him

Charm cherubic chic
Charismatic Grandpa went to church
Chanting prayers for all
Changed his Rosy orchard into heaven

(Dedicated to my loving Grandpa John Knight. Though he’s not my real Grandpa, I considered him as my Grandpa.)
