Preston Gardens – a poem by Jonny Fisher

Silent grass sweeps under foot
with soothing quiet brush.
Artist strokes can not compare
pastel under willow shade

Port wine magnolia floats
her scented summer breeze.
Inside exotic rainbow hue
petals hold the perfect gift.

She flows in blooms above;
honeyed beads on high.
Nectar cups the busy bee,
pollen flies on hasty wings.

Harvest lays its seed to grow
falling to rich earth below.
Darkened loam upon the clay
maker of this tinted day.

Rainbow scented nectar flows
beauty that the earth bestows.
All this coloured lively zest
suckles mother natures breast.
