Beauty In The Garden

I look at the eagle sat high up in the tree, I’m envious of all that he can see. I look at the agapanthus, a brilliant blue But the most beautiful flower of all is you. I watch the falcon soaring higher and higher, A blue green kingfisher lands on the wire, Vivid red poker flowers stand stately and tall But you are the most beautiful flower of all. The bright flashes of hovering sunbird so small, The hadedah bird with distinctive call, The lilies that glow with a vibrant orange hue But the most beautiful flower of all is you. White storks tiptoe delicately up the hill, The dam reflects mountains quiet and still, Mauve and white flowers grow shaded by the wall But you are the most beautiful flower of all. Plants of every colour grow in the flowerbeds And swooping swallows dart over our heads, So much beauty’s there in the garden to enthral But you are the most beautiful flower of all
