Garden by Caroline Morgan di Giovanni

Poem title: Garden

Poet name: Caroline Morgan Di Giovanni

Poem: This little garden is a joy

Through child’s eyes the colours dance

Springtime invites a merry walk

Skipping along the garden path.


Strolling in the Summer sun

This little garden is a joy

The green trees shade our long romance

We keep each other company.


Red and gold and Autumn brown

Our whole vista is transformed

This little garden is a joy

Chrysanthemums and marigolds

Tell us the year is passing by.


Today snow fell and covered all

The blanket spread across the yard

An awesome quiet filled the space

This little garden is a joy.

End of poem.
