A Secret Garden's Gardener Speaks

Past this ancient gate:
such flowers you've never seen,
trees you've dreamed to climb

mythic sculptures posed
eternal before fountains
awash with sunlight

topiary beasts
frolic in this labyrinth
where all's blithely lost

hues beyond rainbows
fragrances beyond sweetness
blossoms beyond time

even wind sings here
with exotic birds and chimes:
music not yet known

enter, bloom again,
relive and rejuvenate
in this endless spring!
