Poet, beekeeper, business owner and gardener, Shannon DeAnna Schofield says, she loves “waking to dancing words”. These are the words that danced into Shannon’s mind early one summer morning… A Garden poem.
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 danceShannon DeAnna Schofield, poet, author beekeeper, gardener
Wildly moving in a trance
Now I know I have a chance
It is all because of a garden.
