A Garden Poem


by Shannon DeAnna Schofield

My body sits restful on this shore
My mind is idle and in a bore
Heart yearns for something more
And I thought of a garden.

Daisies dancing in my mind
Regal roses smell so fine
Glads stand tall in a line
In my dream of a garden.

Shovel and spade ready to toil
As I push and dig in heavy soil
It’s so hot my blood will boil
As I construct a garden.

Rain and sun come from above
In a tree is a cooing dove
My heart is now filled with love
When I grow a garden.

Permeating scents of mints and balm
As loud cicadas sing their song
All of this is peaceful calm
As I walk throughout a garden.

Taters, maters, cukes delight
Each are worth all the plight
To have a plethora of food in sight
All because of a garden.

Nutrition and light will deploy
Fill my soul with enduring joy
Freedom of heart I now employ
Within the banks of a garden.

My soul is filled and now I know
As I watched my garden grow
All of this food to bestow
With the harvest of a garden.

Twirling circles in a dance
Wildly moving in a trance
Now I know I have a chance
It is all because of a garden.
