How Sweet The Garden Stood

Remembering how the sweet scented garden stood
Straight stemmed Canna Lilies with pale yellow blooms
Follow the Fluer de Lis Iris spring's passion understood
Before Iris' purple, a host of Daffodils' sweet perfume  
Then the saliferous warrior sprayed Roundup fumes
Now only weeds are plentiful in my sweet garden
Looking through the window to enjoy a sweet view
This heart toward the piquant warrior became harden
Knowing a sweet garden is gone~ only weeds spew
Age says to just give it a sweet kiss adieu

    I normally don't have an emotional response to nature-inspired poems, but you always manage to capture my attention and make me appreciate the beauty of what you are saying. Great poem and kudos :)

    I love the garden you speak of within this write, too bad it disappears over time, becoming overrun by the weeds! I thought at first your poem was going to be a Dizain, but it turns out to be two separate Quintains, and very well written! I really enjoyed reading this amazing piece, Great Work!!

    It is a sad time when the beautiful flowers wither away. Yet, in our hearts we know that they will return in the spring. We just have to wait a little while longer. A very descriptive poem, really great work, Sara! This is an interesting take on the "sweet or salty" theme. I wish you the best of luck in the contest!...Thank you for the kind comments!
