In The Garden Wow! Plants and flowers and everything, they beautify the garden and make everything green. But just underneath what is that I see moving? It’s a cobra in its lair with a baby coming to it. Oh no should I fear and call out or pursue it? I can breathe a sigh of relief it won’t harm anyone, in this garden harmful things are now gone. Some trees in the garden are stately and tall, they tower and make everything else seem so small. I peered a bit deeper, look what I saw, a giraffe with some leaves in it’s mouth. Then on it’s back was a little sweet girl, she wasn’t afraid it would give her a whirl. That’s because in this garden, the giraffe was her friend, its out of this world! It won’t let her fall, it will carry her in the wind. Some trees are huge their muscles just bulge, you feel so protected their strength will not fudge. Then high on it’s limbs there was something with spots. Is that an animal, I just know it is not! It was a big leopard cat, they were looking at it, and it looked at them back. No reason for fear, it won’t harm anything, it was beautiful and serene. We know that is true because of the one sleeping near by. They slept in pure peace cause no danger was nye. Then there are beautiful roses and tulips galore, their colors explode and are bursting with more. Oh my look just beneath is that a little cub bear? There must be a mom, she must be somewhere. Just over the hill she was on her way toward me. I didn’t know what to do, I started to flee. No need to run, this is the same one that let the little boy cuddle up, while she showed him her precious little cubs. This garden is special, so beautiful and free. No more will man have a gripe with the beast. No more will the beast feel they will have to flee. In this garden everyone will be free, to that our magnanimous King will see.

Very descriptive, I like the imagery of the plants and animals.
