My Garden

Original Text: 
Thomas Edward Brown, Old John, and other poems (London: Macmillan, 1893). PR 4175 B5 O4 Robarts Library
1A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
2    Rose plot,
3    Fringed pool,
4Ferned grot--
5    The veriest school
6    Of peace; and yet the fool
7Contends that God is not--
8Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
9    Nay, but I have a sign;
10    'Tis very sure God walks in mine.
