GARDEN BLOGGERS' MUSE DAY

An Arrangement for Jason
by Moi





The Garden in Winter



by Lucy Maud Montgomery


Frosty-white and cold it lies
Underneath the fretful skies;
Snowflakes flutter where the red
Banners of the poppies spread,

And the drifts are wide and deep
Where the lilies fell asleep.
But the sunsets o'er it throw
Flame-like splendor, lucent glow,

And the moonshine makes it gleam
Like a wonderland of dream,
And the sharp winds all the day
Pipe and whistle shrilly gay.Safe
beneath the snowdrifts lie Rainbow buds of by-and-by;

In the long, sweet days of spring
Music of bluebells shall ring,
And its faintly golden cup
Many a primrose will hold up.

Though the winds are keen and chill
Roses' hearts are beating still,
And the garden tranquilly
Dreams of happy hours to be­

In the summer days of blue
All its dreamings will come true.
