The Dark Garden: The Setting Sun

Posted by georgeiii (My Page) on

As mountains rise
to catch the setting sun
it takes brush in hand
to paint the chasing clouds
in royalty decorations
dimness of sight
brings out the light
of Moon lit shadows eve
our labors lay before us
a mess of stalks, vines
branches and twigs
but we sit down
having just got round
the gardens treasure trove
for in we reached
into that tangled mass
to bring out fairy gold
tomato, onions, beans
we sit right there
right there in that chair
to nibble sweet corn
or a peppers heat
Ahhh but we go from there
for waters on the boil
to melt this gold
into our evening meal
but tomorrow well return
to hunt this treasure trove
as the mountains rise
to catch the setting sun
