A Garden And A Library

A Garden And A Library


Garden Poem of the Day

The Seed-Shop
By Muriel Stewart

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

Dead that shall quicken at the voice of spring,
Sleepers to wake beneath June's tempest kiss;
Though birds pass over, unremembering,
And no bee find here roses that were his.

In this brown husk a dale of hawthorn dreams;
A cedar in this narrow cell is thrust
That shall drink deeply at a century's streams;
These lilies shall make summer on my dust.

Here in their safe and simple house of death,
Sealed in their shells, a million roses leap;
Here I can stir a garden with my breath,
And in my hand a forest lies asleep.
