LIKE A WATERED GARDEN
(Isaiah 58:11)



Like a watered garden
Fresh flowers display their splendour
Perfumed and scented Eden
Touch our hearts with awesome wonder.

Out of pure love He blessed us
With all good things around
No need to be over anxious
His harvest does abound

Flowers and fruit surround us
Their beauty to delight
Our hearts with joy delirious
As we behold their sight

Their fragrance takes our senses
To lofty, rapturous heights
Perfume the air within fences
And charm the summer nights

The rose in its finery of colours
Lovely, scented, rich in bloom
A sprinkle of April showers
Endows the garden, cast away gloom

Carnation, lily, violet, anthurium
Exotic orchid, heliconia, hibiscus
Spring alive at the gardenerís thumb
Signal that Nature is ever marvellous.

Chosen flowers of His creation
If we keep His promise in this Eden
Isaiah Fifty-eight told the nation
We will be Ďlike a watered gardení.

Itís right there in Verse Eleven.
Our promised stairway from earth to Heaven.

Excellent poem. I wish that descibed my garden! In one of two places I lost the rhythm, but it evoked a lovely scene.

You chose a wonderful passage of scripture to expound on, and used some beautiful imagery. Thanks! Consider working on more consistency of rhyme and meter.

This is a dear little poem; the phrasing needs to be tightened up in places to hold the flow. Otherwise very sweet. God bless.
