In the Garden
As I step softly into
the garden this morning
The dew sparkling like diamonds
The sweet aroma is enchanting,
I waltz on the tips of my toes
And curtsy slowly to the roses
That begin blooming before me,
And like the old pale wooden swing
Are swaying in time in the breeze,
To the vibrant symphony of Spring.
