In The Garden

Ever in the garden, my soul is given rest

Like a newly feathered chickadee, still swaddled in its nest

All around green cedar trees, with rugged trunks of grey

Hide secrets of the chestnut squirrel that sometimes comes to play

The blurry haze of irises, the bluest kind of sky

And purple painted peonies illuminate the eye

Scarlet headed dahlia, white roses on the gate

Fading now at evening as the warm sun does abate

The lushest scent of rich brown earth – my garden, calm and sweet

Safe harbor from a hectic day, this arboreal retreat

By Lake Forest Park resident Cynthia Sheridan
