A Garden Can Be A Work Of Art

A Garden Can Be A Work Of Art


Garden Poem of the Day

Sonnet 98
By William Shakespeare

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue,
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew:
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight
Drawn after you, – you pattern of all those.
Yet seem’d it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.

DROP some red hearts if you love this gorgeous field of beautiful dahlias 🌸❤ . Credit to @loreliemerton for this amazing shot! 🌱😊 . . . 🔸️Garden Poem of the Day🔸️ . "Life's Garden" By Anna B. Kurzweil We all grow up in this Garden called Life, There are many inner and outer strifes, In the silence, in the silence, In this beautiful Garden called Life! There are weeds and pests in the Garden called Life, They are known as ignorance, greed and vice. In the silence, in the silence, In this beautful Garden called Life. Every garden needs sunshine and rain, In this garden you will find joy and pain. In this silence, in this silence, In this beautiful Garden called Life! Plant sparsley, your harvest will be a pittance, Plant bountifully, your harvest will be munificence, In this silence, in this silence, In this beautiful Garden called Life! Did you plant deeds of joy love and peace? Or did you drop seeds of hatred, conflict and gloom? The world will know by the plants' bloom. In the silence, in the silence, In this beautiful Garden called Life! . ______________________________________________________________ . Want to be featured on our page?
