My Garden by T. E. Brown
A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Fern'd grot --
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not --
Not God! in Gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
'Tis very sure God walks in mine.
My Garden by J. A. Lindon
A garden is a lovesome thing? What rot!
In pieces; yet the fool
Contends that snails are not -
Not snails! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I see their trails!
'Tis very sure my garden’s full of snails!
