Garden Helper

I’m out to plant spring flowers 
with little feet in tow.
His eager hands will churn the soil
as gentle breezes blow.
His tender feet will grace this place
and leave sweet prints behind
to create patterns of delight -
his garden art to find.

As temperamental winter bows
to steadfast warmth of spring...
most cherished of my flowers grown, 
my wild one on the swing!

I'm going to the garden
to chase a little boy,
buzzing like a bumble bee...
an afternoon of joy!

    This made me nostalgic for when my children were young. But now I have a couple grandbabies so it's all good!

    A delightful account of your garden outing with your sweet boy. I'm sure he loves trekking through the flowers as much as I did in childhood. Gardening is always something I shared with my mother, so this poem made me smile. Enjoyed very much! Love, Carolyn PS-a friend's new granddaughter Ayla has been in ICU. She could use some prayers now. Thanks, hon.
