The Garden of First Love

The Garden of First Love

‘Tis a fortress—
My secret, hiding place.
Yet it is no secret,
For it is a public garden,
And whoever wills
May enter in.

Yet, though they may,
And seeing my delight
They wonder:
Their hearts they harden,
And so…
Do they refuse.

In that place,
The love-of-my-youth and I
Share our inmost thoughts.
I hurt, he heals;
I weep, he comforts;
He speaks, and I obey.

He sees hearts hardened,
And asks me,
“Will you also go away?”
“But. Lord,” I beg,
“Where should I go?
You only are my life.”

2008 L. K. Stevenson
