  1. A Gift From The Divine
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    A tiny seed, so small I hold it in my palm,
    Yet its potential shows when in the garden it is placed.
    Its life-filled potential greater than a child's dreams.
    Awakens with the miracle of God's grace it seems.

    Our creativity is a gift from the Divine.
    The seedling slowly inches for the sun above.
    As it grows, I'm forever thankful to our loving Lord -
    Thankful for the garden we will grow together with love!

  3. Life Is Like A Garden
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Life is like a garden,
    Planted with what we sow,
    A road of hard work,
    Results, sometimes slow.

    Yet none can know the beauty to come,
    After months of steps and hum,
    For a tiny seed pushed through,
    With strength and determination too.

    Before our eyes a bounty it grows,
    Ensuring success we’ll reap what we've sowed.
    An ever-hopeful journey of expectation
    The garden rewards with compensation.

    Through hardship the bud blossoms into a flower,
    The same is true of our goals if we put in the hours.
    A purpose for hope is alive in every blooming petal and leaf,
    Encouraging us forward until our goals are complete.

  5. A Garden So Green
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    A garden so green,
    A sight so pure,
    Planting the seeds
    I did cure

    Bringing life to this Earth,
    Watching it grow and burst
    In happiness and light
    I was immersed

    A fruit salad emerges
    From the soil
    Colorful vegetables
    Wither my toil

    From this effort of mine,
    Satisfaction is defined
    Where I enjoy each and every
    Succulent veggie that has been refined.

  7. 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.

  9. Plant For A Good Life
    Poet: Unknown

    Plant three rows of peas:
    Peace of mind
    Peace of heart
    Peace of soul

    Plant four rows of squash:
    Squash gossip
    Squash indifference
    Squash grumbling
    Squash selfishness

    Plant four rows of lettuce:
    Lettuce be faithful
    Lettuce be kind
    Lettuce be obedient
    Lettuce really love one another

    No garden should be without turnips:
    Turnip for meetings
    Turnip for service
    Turnip to help one another

    Water freely with patience and
    Cultivate with love.
    There is abundance in your garden
    Because you reap what you sow.

    To conclude our garden,
    We must have thyme:
    Thyme for God
    Thyme for study
    Thyme for prayer

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

    Short Verses about Garden Growing

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Ye botanists, I cannot talk like you.
    And give to ev'ry plant its name and rank.
    Taught by Linne; yet I perceive in all.
    Or known or unknown, in the garden raised.
    Or nurtured in the hedgerow or a field,
    A secret something which delights my eye.
    James Hurdis

  18. All my hurts
    My garden spade can heal, a woodland walk,
    A quest of river grapes, a mocking thrush.
    A wild rose, a rock-loving columbine.
    Salve my worst wounds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  19. A garden so well watered before morn
    Is hotly up that not the swart sun’s blaze,
    Down beating with unmitigated rays,
    Nor scorching winds from fiery deserts borne,
    Shall quite prevail to leave it bare and shorn
    Of its green beauty, shall not quite prevail
    That all its morning freshness shall exhale,
    Till evening and the evening dews return, -
    A blessing such as this our hearts might reap,
    The freshness of the garden they might share,
    Through the long day a heavenly freshness keep,
    If, knowing how the day and the day’s glare
    Must beat upon them, we would largely steep
    And water them betimes with dews of prayer.
    Richard C. Trench
