The garden sings


The garden sings -
gospel harmony
birds in full bloom
warbling, wheeping, chiffing
colouring early summer.
The garden sings -
bluebells ringing
poppies swelling with pride
primroses shining
and weeds among
the great and good.
The garden sings -
an evening melancholia,
blues to greys,
as the sun dips
beyond factory and house.
Evening crumbs on the lawn,
shadows wait in ambush,
night raises a watchful eye
as curtains draw
and the songs of sunset
segue into dreaming.
