Eyrignac

As I walked

through the garden dew

'tween clipped box and shapely yew,

'tween hard hornbeam and

'tween friends

a perfect peace descends

 

As I walked

from the round green room

past dusky shade and roses' bloom,

past shapely hedge and

past huge urns

the garden quiet returns

 

As I walked

in the lakeside glory

to the enchanted terrace torri,

to the white rose garden and

to its frogs' cascades

the warm day's delight pervades

 

As I walked

in front of golden Artaban

its Roman chapel its courtesan,

its white rose guardian and

its yard entrée

a zephyr breath holds sway

 

And as I walked

the hornbeam alleys

through trees creating silent ballets,

through topiary shapes and

through hedges dense

my love brings joy to every sense

Again beautiful writing, from the green room, dusky shade and roses bloom. As i am sure you know the word Paradise comes from the old Persian word for a garden. Apologise for the errors but my keyboard is kaput.
