Mary's Garden: A Poem: My Garden

My Garden
by Thomas Edward Brown

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot--
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that Gos is not--
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign:
'Tis very sure God walks in mine.

From the Home Book of Verse for Young Folks,Holt, Rinehart and Winston, NY
