Garden of life


In the garden where flowers grow
Planted are the seeds of life
Mother Nature can best show
Harmony in perfect strife

In every bending leaf and branch
In every fading flower
In beads of water on the sand
After every little shower

In every ray of summer sun
In every gasp of winters breath
In every sound of springtime fun
In autumns lambent death

In the garden where flowers grow
Bare witness to her magic
Through the seasons her wonder flows
Beautiful and tragic
