A glimpse in the garden – Joseph May

A glimpse in the garden

My garden lies between the trees
Where lilies dance in gentle breeze
And lilacs whisper pretty please
To a butterfly’s caressing tease

Nearby glows the buttercups
Where honeybees come to sup
While hummingbirds on branches squint
To catch a glimpse of hyacinths
And daffodils in yellow coats
Sway to songbirds dulcet notes

Queen Anne’s lace is also grown
With Forget-me-nots and anemones
But the rose in beauty stands alone
And smiles demurely from her throne
