Murray – In Gardens

In Gardens

In an Italian Renaissance garden
I marvel at water features, trimmed boxwood and yew,
regal marble statues.

I wander Monet’s garden
a living Impressionist painting
Pastel water lilies float in Olympic pool ponds,
tourists jostle for space
wisteria scales his Japanese Bridge.

In an English landscape garden
I walk among flowing paths and tall trees
Perennial beds burst into bloom.

Snowy clematis creeps across my arbour
roses blush pink, delphiniums stand straight
Beauty and peace
in my garden
all gardens.
