My Summer Garden

Each week we publish a reader’s gardening poem. This week, Pauline describes her perfect summer’s day in the garden

- Pauline O’Keefe

The summer garden looks serene, With edging plants and lawn of green, Roses, herbs, and climbing plants, Butterflie­s, bees and busy ants.

The sun draws scent into the air, Releasing it for all the share,

Fruitlets gleam on the old pear tree, Promising bounty – all totally free.

A robin lands at the water’s edge Blackbirds wait in the hawthorn hedge. The sun’s now sinking in the west,

Owls are stirring in their nest.

A perfect end to a summer’s day, Same tomorrow lord, please I pray.
