Sometimes, He Said, In The Garden

Everyone needs a little humour

Sometimes, he said....

Swinging from his vine

You didn't have to be so kind

As I handed him, a tangerine

But what does it mean and

What is this green, spot?

Here, let me see; back in his tree 

Laughing at the world; laughing as

He handed me this pearl....

Sometimes, he said, as he lifted his head

And he let out, a certain roar

Why, I haven't heard that, before?

While as I opened my palm....

His chatter became calm and his eyes

Grew wide; swinging from his vine

You didn't have to be, so blind

And why do you chide?

But I wanted to be kind and

Give you back gold in exchange for

Your pearl....But what does it mean

And what is this green, dust?

Here, let me see; back in his tree

Staring at me, with a knowing simper 

I could tell, that he was bathing, his temper

Sometimes, he said....

....In the garden ~
