MY FLOWER GARDEN
By Patty Lynn
The flowers in my garden are
So beautiful to see.
I wish that when I talk to them
That they’d talk back to me.
O, magic garden fairy, come,
And wave of your magic wand.
Make flowers speak, no secrets keep,
From evening until dawn.
I love my flower garden, so.
Each flower is amazing!
The blossoms there, beyond compare,
Come at me, colors blazing.
O, red, red rose on prickly stem,
You gorgeous flower of mine.
One look at you and well I know
My day will be just fine.
Dear daisy with your petals white
And golden center hue,
You show me why each morn I sigh,
“Dear daisy, I love you!”
Forget-me-nots, with petals blue,
I can’t believe you’re mine.
Your tiny flowers smile back at me
And make me feel divine!
My lilac bush, so big and tall,
Each bloom a lilac blue.
Your smell, it is a fragrance, sweet
That lasts the whole day through.
My tulips are the first to come
In springtime they arrive.
How welcome after winter’s snow.
They make me feel alive!
Daylilies are such sturdy blooms
In crimson, orange and white.
Best not decide to bring them in
They’ll wither overnight.
Clematis, you’re a funny one.
Your new growth comes on old.
Can’t cut you back for I will find
In spring, no blooms unfold.
A lovely one’s Lobelia,
In purple, white and pink.
All by yourself or with a group
You need a daily drink.
Grand, hardy standing there.
The lacy Martha Washington’s
My favorite, to be fair.
Pert Pansies always make me smile
Each morning when you greet
It seems you have a tiny face.
Your varied colors treat!
So there it is, fair garden, mine
In vivid colors bright.
It takes but one, one look at you,
To make my heart take flight.
Your beauty’s unmistakable.
No garden quite so sweet.
Each flower there that needs my care,
It makes my joy complete!
