Dawn In My Garden

Dawn In My Garden




Garden Poem of the Day

Dawn In My Garden
By Marguerite Wilkinson

I went into my garden at break of Delight, 
Before Joy had risen in the Eastern sky, 
To see how many cucumbers had happened over night, 
And how much higher stood the corn that yesterday was high.

I went into my garden when Rest had fallen away 
From the tops of blue hills, from the valleys gold and green, 
To see how far the beans had travelled up into the day, 
And whether all my lettuces were glad and cool and clean.

I went into my garden when Mirth was laughing low 
Through the sharp-scented leaves of the lush tomato vines, 
Through the long blue-grey leaves of the turnips in a row, 
Where early in the every day the dew shakes and shines.

Oh, Rest had slipped away from the valleys green and gold, 
From the tops of blue hills that were silent all the night, 
But the big, round Joy was rising, busy and bold, 
When I went into my garden at break of Delight!
