There is a garden in every child

There is a garden in every child
And every child a landscape to be filled
In every dream grows the orchid wild
In every infant the sweet self-willed
What will you plant happily today
What will you reap sadly tomorrow
How ling will the lily fragrance stay
Who will dig and plough it, and harrow?
There is a garden in every child
In every dream grows the orchid wild.
