Garden Magic

This is the garden's magic, 
That through the sunny hours 
The gardener who tends it, Himself outgrows his flowers

He grows by gift of patience
Since he who sows must know 
That only in the Lord's good time 
Does any seedling grow

He learns from buds unfolding, 
From each tight leaf unfurled, 
That his own heart, expanding, i
s one with all the world

He bares his head to sunshine
His bending back a sign
Of grace, and ev'ry shower becomes 
His sacramental wine

And when at last his labors 
Bring forth the very stuff 
And substance of all beauty
This is reward enough.


  1. From one gardener to another: Thank you for such a lovely post! And, for including my little garden shot---I'm honored ;-)
    I hope you had a great weekend, my friend. Cheers.....Loi
