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
