My Garden
By Thomas Edward Brown (1830–1897)
 
A GARDEN is a lovesome thing, God wot!
  Rose plot,
  Fringed pool,
Fern’d grot—
  The veriest school        5
  Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not—
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
    Nay, but I have a sign;
    ’Tis very sure God walks in mine.        10
