The Garden

Welcome to my humble garden

Welcome to my humble garden

Long ago there was a man I knew.

Who had a garden where flowers grew
And the green grass was pretty and neat:
Just to see it was quite a treat.
There were flowers red and flowers blue:
Flowers of almost every hue.
And underneath a big shade tree
Was soft enough for any knee.
And in the midst of his garden rare
A bubbling fountain he put there.
With sparkling water running clear
It’s tinkling sound, a joy to hear.
A bench beneath another tree
Was sure a welcome sight to see.
Birds and pretty butterflies
Hovering seemed to soothe the eyes.
A painted fence he made of wood
Framed his yard just as it should.
For sure his garden might win a prize
Except, and I might emphasize
One thing destroyed his fine design.
It was a huge No Trespass Sign!
