Poems about Gardens by Famous Poets
My garden is a pleasant place
Of sun glory and leaf grace.
There is an ancient cherry tree
Where yellow warblers sing to me
nd an old grape arbor, where
A robin builds her nest, and there
Above the lima beans and peas
She croons her little melodies,...

God's Garden Poem
God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said "To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.....

Garden Making
Whoever makes a garden
Has never worked alone;
the rain has always found it,
The sun has always known;

The wind has blown across it
And helped to scatter seeds;
Whoever makes a garden
Has all the help he needs...

Butterfly Poem
Once as a child many years ago...
on a balmy summer's eve.
I sat in the yard at my Mother's side...
and a butterfly lit at my sleeve.
"It's a sign of good luck", my Mother said.
As the butterfly stayed at my arm...
"It's a symbol of all the beauty in life.
Make sure you do it no harm."

Ladybug Poem
One little Ladybug
With spots on its wings
Landed right beside me
As I played on the swings

Two little Ladybugs
Flew around a flower
Then crawled beneath a leaf
To nap for half an hour!

Rose Poem
Nobody knows this little Rose -
It might a pilgrim be
Did I not take it from the ways
And lift it up to thee.
Only a Bee will miss it -
Only a Butterfly,
Hastening from far journey -
On its breast to lie -

Flower Poem
Within a garden once there grew
A flower that seemed the very pattern
Of all propriety; none knew
She was at heart a wandering slattern.

The gardener old, with care and pain,
Had trained her up as she should grow,
Nor dreamed amid his labor vain
That rank rebellion lurked below.

Poems About Birds
Within my Garden, rides a Bird
Upon a single Wheel -
Whose spokes a dizzy Music make
As 'twere a travelling Mill

He never stops, but slackens
Above the Ripest Rose -
Partakes without alighting
And praises as he goes, ...

Tree Poems
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Her lawn
looks like a meadow,
And if she mows the place
She leaves the clover standing
And the Queen Anne's Lace.

Famous Poems About Dawn
Aurora bids the buds awake,
And sends the winds abroad to play,
To croon the rose a roundelay,
To rouse the cricket in the brake;

To ruffle up the placid lake,
And trick the fields for holiday.
Aurora bids the buds awake
And sends the winds abroad to play.

A Garden Is
Poet: William Arthur Ward


A garden is a lovely place,
Where seeds burst through the sod,
A garden is a partnership,
Between two hands and God.

A garden is a restful place,
Where gentle breezes blow. . .
A family of growing things,
Where souls can also grow.
