MY GARDEN, by                    
First Line: I have a private garden plot
Last Line: To walk in the garden again with you.
Subject(s): Gardens & Gardening; Wellesley College

I HAVE a private garden plot,
It is a pleasant, sheltered spot,
Its air is stirred by never a breeze,
Blue larkspur forms a stately frieze
For the garden wall, and locust trees
Make chequered shade when the sun is hot.

O'er dew-damp paths we walked; you knew
And loved my garden odors, too;
Roses and phlox and mignonette --
They cling about my senses yet!
I shut my eyes, when the sun has set
To walk in the garden again with you.
