Passing By A Garden - Poem by G.S. Allen

I’ve seen your garden’s
Radiant green
Cupid spouting
Atop her fountain
Asphodel shorn
Amid rose and thorn
The one silly
Egregious lily
Stolen from my farm
You water from
Your bedroom window
The tin spout
Reaching out
Like a pampered
Heron
Wisteria overtaken
The gazebo screens
Dissecting moonbeams
that lit your naked torso
in glittering, broken
Streams
And as well, earthen
Piles and swells
From the recluse mole
You will not kill
In obligation
To abnegation
