Our garden is a lovely sight In summer when the flowers are bright, Dahlias, roses, hollyhocks tall, Lupins, stocks and daisies small. The stately daffodils and snowdrops Appear when springtime gives the word, Then from the ground each little flower As soon as the blackbird's song is heard. In autumn when the leaves fall down, Tinted in red and gold and brown, Crocuses in their earthen beds Peep forth and show their coloured heads. When winter comes but once a year, Rain and hail soak the earth, I fear; But safe in their beds in walls of brown, Each flower is dressing and making her crown. —Evelyn Maughan, 10 (original).
