A Garden

 

Take a walk through a garden with me

To the greenhouse, the swing and the old oak tree

 

The barbeque, bee hive and raspberry patch

To the crooked wooden gate and it’s weather-worn latch

 

Old tennis balls and wind wrecked wooden fences

Bright blue pellets, garden defences

 

Overcut grass, lavender disguised as sage

Picking tomatoes, cutting chives for egg mayonnaise

 

Cats mocking dogs whilst squirrels scurry away

The birds fly off when the fox cubs play
