On a summer’s day . . .

Names
Larkspur and Hollyhock,
Pink Rose and purple Stock,
Lovely smelling Mignonette,
Lilies not quite opened yet,
Phlox the favorite of bees,
Bleeding Heart and Peonies –
Just their names are nice to say,
Softly,
On a summer’s day.

  1. The poem reminds me of the song "An English Country Garden" which I love to sing. The names do just slip off the tongue and bring happiness, don’t they?Jody
