My Garden by Thomas E. BrownWritten sometime in the 1800's, this poem transcends the passing of time and feels quite at home in my 2015 garden. I found the poem years ago, loved it, and copied it by hand into a little journal where I keep quotes that I like. Simple, yet profound, it always makes me smile. I share it with you today along with recent photos from the garden and hope that you like it too.
by Thomas E. Brown
A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Of peace: and yet the fool
Contend that God is not--
Not God! In gardens!
when the eve is cool!
Nay, but I have a sign:
Tis very sure God walks in mine.
