Garden Show



Jasminum grandiflorum
Spiralling with no decorum
Braiding lilac tree of purple
Interlacing to encircle

Underneath the scented tree
Dances the honey bee
Tall heads of lavandula
Sway with small petunia

The garden wall displays a banner
Of pink clematis montana
Soft pastels parade and flatter
Like the prunus serrulata

Pirouetting ballerinas
With skirts of white gardenias
Elegant show of fashion
Intently and with passion

Classic petals of the rosa
Hug together much closer
For perfumes made in summer
In a jar, for dear Mother

Garden of timeless botanics
Stimulating with aromatics
Memories conjured by smell
Casting a magical spell

  1. There are so few poems about the sense of smell. Perfect!

  2. Love the photo and the eloquent poem!

  3. Lovely! I think this is the first time I’ve seen someone come up with a rhyme for “grandiflorum”! 🙂
