My Kingdom

My Kingdom

When I’m in my garden
I’m a King, I have a throne
I sit here very solitary
I am happy on my own

All my subjects gather round
The birds, the flowers, the trees
And all those noisy Sand gropers
The frogs, and all the bees.

Canaries have a special place
They play music for my court
Often wild birds join along
As I sit wrapped in thought.

My courtyards are not tidy
All the bushes cling together
But hey, they give me so much shade
In our hot sticky weather.

So I sit and write my memoirs down
Like a good King really should
As I sit here in my kingdom
And I really feel so good.

    I love to spend my days in the garden, as well. Very creative write, Peter! Great imagery..... "And, I really felt so good" after reading this one! Nicely done :) And, thank you for the kind comments, once again!

    Hail to the KING! I hear the birds all sing. The fowers and the tree's all sway so gently in this peaceful day. Every creature gladly dwells inside your lovely garden. They don't feel like prisoners or want a royal pardon. Peace. :)
