My backyard blooms and simple gardens grow,
enhanced bouquets that fill a summerís dream
and purple lilac buds replete the show
with color whorls like silky ribbons gleam.

A wreath of laurel decks the cobblestones
and verdant trees are bent inside the breeze,
their breathless music speaks in mellow-tones
while blue bells sway like tips of crested seas.

The lofty serenade of nightingales
beneath unsullied azure sky reside,
their fluid notes in heavenís choir prevails
like vestals stand the tulips swell with pride.

My flower petals bask in morningís glow
and brace for winterís song of ice and snow.
