I always want to participate in Garden Bloggers Muse Day started by Carolyn, I don't always do it. This time of year I am so busy. Aren't we all though. If you would like to read more go to her blog and see who all is participating or if you want to participate you can read her comments to find some good reading. I chose a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson. It is a bit of whimsy and always makes me feel so young. I can't explain why but here it is...
All the names I knkow from nurse:
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse,
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock,
And the lady Hollyhock.
Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames-
But the fairest woods are these;
Where if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all. I apologize for the spacing problems with the poem. I have no idea why Blogger decided to do one stanza correct for me and the others I can't get right no matter what Ihave tried. I don't fight this machine so please forgive the mess. I had good intentions.
