Thoughts In A Garden

Rating: 3.1

HOW vainly men themselves amaze
To win the palm, the oak, or bays,
And their uncessant labours see

Whose short and narrow-verged shade
Does prudently their toils upbraid;
While all the flowers and trees do close
To weave the garlands of repose!

Fair Quiet, have I found thee here,

And Innocence thy sister dear?

An amazing piece of literature, where the love for mother nature and her affections are so well expressed.

Andrew Marvell's garden of plants is not the only garden bursting into life here, his mental garden is bursting at the seams with thoughts. His train of thought takes us on a scenic trip through topics like the ruthlessness of society, innocence, love, passion, temptation. Beautifully penned
