The Gardener

Lily, jasmine and roses
Tulips, carnations and daffodils
He adores and chooses
Cosmos, zinnia and daisies

His hands paintbrush of nature
His eyes tasters of beauty
He turns seeds in flower
His caring hands have power

Flowers are his babies
He nurtures and nurses
Liatris, orchids and quinces
Just like Prince and Princes

Springs come to treat him
The clouds stay to greet him
The breeze blows to meet him
None other to compete him

Sight of a withering larkspur
Anguish cuts him deeper
Seeing a lisianthus blowing
A profound delight bestowing

He places the Divine paintings
In splendid frame of garden
To meet the earth’s yearnings
His prolific hands are chosen

A Celestial color sprayer
The job he does is a prayer

    Exquisite my friend! Such marvelous phrasing - '...clouds stay to greet him,' '...profound delight bestowing,' '...prolific hands are chosen.' Well done indeed!! Best wishes, Keith
