At the bottom of my garden
There's a hedgehog and a frog
And a lot of creepy-crawlies

    There are caterpillars waiting
    For their time to come to fly,
    There are worms turning the earth over
    As ladybirds fly by,
    Birds will visit, cats will visit
    very fine poem. tony

    My garden is a lively place
    There's always something happening,
    There's this constant search for food
    And then there's all that flowering, .......all families of the nature on the natural trails; all make their life according to own wish and adaptation; beautifully delineated the characteristics of nature, insects life; nice to read

    Good poem. Yes true true. Zimbabweans need a garden of their own. Indians need theirs. The British their own.

    There are caterpillars waiting
    For their time to come to fly,
    There are worms turning the earth over
    As ladybirds fly by, beauty in its shine. tony
