Ode to my Husband the Gardener
This story begins at the front of our home
where the rabbits, coyotes and javelina may roam.
Please don’t disturb these flowers so bright
or my hubby may scare you and fill you with fright!
The orange, the yellow, the purple and red,
fill our front yard on our joyous homestead.
My honey, he waters and feeds the dear plants,
and cuts me bouquets, with which he enchants.
Our kitty, Namare, likes to roam through the blooms
watching hummingbirds flutter as they zip and they zoom.
An afternoon break with a goodie and café
Reminds us to savor this magnificent day.
Thank you my darling for flowers so sweet
for keeping them blooming is no easy feat.
