If You Once Loved A Garden

If You Once Loved A Garden


Garden Poem of the Day

Lost Gardens
By Louise Driscoll

If once you loved a garden 
That's not your garden now — 
Yellow crocus in the grass 
And budding lilac bough. 
April's a remembering time, 
You will always know 
Green splashed gold of daffodils 
Where they used to grow.

If once you loved a garden 
That love will stay with you. 
In April there's a morning 
When violets are blue. 
You come upon them suddenly, 
And suddenly you see 
A green white mist has fallen 
On the old pear tree.

Once I loved a garden 
That's not my garden now. 
In April I remember 
The smell of earth, and how 
Like folded hands in prayer, 
Holding a scented heart, 
The hyacinths come pushing 
The loose, brown soil apart.

You can't forget a garden 
Where you have planted seed, 
Where you have watched the weather 
And known the rose's need. 
When you go away from it, 
However long or far, 
You leave your heart behind you 
Where roots and tendrils are.
