Green Thumbs Up - Garden Poems

Throughout the world there are many different gardens that people have designed. In a Japanese garden, every tree is perfectly pruned, without a leaf out of place. Nothing is planted without forethought as to the exact place appropriate to it. There are English gardens that are famous for their roses and perfect lines of shrubbery. The number of garden types are too numerous to mention. One thing is true of all gardens. It is joint creation between man's intention to create a space of tranquility and nature's ability to comply.

  1. 1. The Glory Of The Garden

    Famous Poem

    Our England is a garden that is full of stately views,
    Of borders, beds and shrubberies and lawns and avenues,
    With statues on the terraces and peacocks strutting by;
    But the Glory of the Garden lies in more than meets the eye.

    HERE in a quiet and dusty room they lie,
    Faded as crumbled stone and shifting sand,
    Forlorn as ashes, shrivelled, scentless, dry -
    Meadows and gardens running through my hand.

    Come and see my lovely garden with its borders, beds and shrubs
    Take a look at the wisteria, the camellias in tubs
    Admire the antirrhinums the gardenias and stocks
    The asters and surfinias and towering hollyhocks

    How I love my little garden, where I sit and contemplate.
    My perfect piece of paradise inside my garden gate.
    Hanging baskets, pretty pots, the flowers are brimming over.
    The grass so green, the buttercups, the daisies, and the clover.

    • Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011 with permission of the Author.

    It was a sunny bright evening, an evening so calm,
    The kind of evening that was inviting me with an outstretched arm.
    So I decided to spend an hour doing almost nothing,
    Sitting and enjoying the best of what nature could bring.
