Who Makes a Garden
Poet: Douglas Malloch


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.

Whoever makes a garden
Should surely not complain,
With someone like the sunshine
And someone like the rain

And someone like the breezes
To aid him in his toil
And someone like the Father
Who gave the garden soil.

Whoever makes a garden
Has, oh, so many friends;
The glory of the morning
The dew when daylight ends.

For rain and wind and sunshine
And dew and fertile sod;
And he who makes a garden
Works hand and hand with God.


He who makes a garden 
 works hand and hand with God.  Douglas Malloch



Short Verses about Garden Growing

Let first the onion flourish there,
Rose among the roots, the maiden-fair
Wine scented and poetic soul
of the capacious salad bowl.
Robert Louis Stevenson


Now in the east
the white bean
and the great squash
are tied with the rainbow.
Listen! the rain's drawing near!
The voice of the bluebird is heard.
Navaho Indian Chant


To my favorite honeydew, do you carrot all for me?
My heart beets for you, with your turnip nose, and radish face.
You are a peach. If we cantaloupe, lettuce marry.
Weed make a swell pear.
Author Unknown


Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian;
wine and tarragon make it French.
Sour cream makes it Russian;
lemon and cinnamon make it Greek.
Soy sauce makes it Chinese;
garlic makes it good.
Alice May Brock


In the right place at the right time,
tomato worms on tomato vines.
She is perfectly still, calm and concerned;
poised by the vines, hunting for worms.
Mike Garofalo


When gardening, I have one gift
You won't find in any manuals -
I know it's strange, but I can change
Perennials to annuals.
Dick Emmons
