The Old Man And His Garden

The old man and his 
garden

I saw this old man time 
and time again,
I was a little child then;
He wakes up early in the 
morn,
Despite there is a rain 
storm;
No idea of having his tea,
Whilst i saw him with 
bended knee;
Picking up all the fallen 
leaves by his hand,
There is not even a 
single weed in his land;
Altogether but lovely 
flowers with different  
hues,
Rose,dahlia,marigold to 
mention few;
He walks to and fro 
around his garden,
Signalling that 
trespassers are 
forbidden;
When i smiled at him,he 
frowns,
Like an angry king 
without a crown;
Years and years passed 
by,
I still saw the old man 
working like a busy bee;
Grown old and full of 
wrinkles,
But his eyes still 
twinkles;
He takes good care of his 
garden,
Like a responsible 
warden;
Yet again,i tried to smile 
at him,he frowns,
Like an angry king 
without a crown.

    I like the flow, rhyme, and rhythm of this one..Sad that he frowned though..I can understand though for it is hard work but rewarding for one can see the fruits of their labor..Thanks for stopping by..Sara
