My Mother's Garden

Her heart is like her garden, old-fashioned, quaint and sweet
With here a wealth of blossoms, and there a still retreat.
Sweet violets are hiding, we know as we pass by,
And lilies, pure as angel thoughts, are opening somewhere nigh.

Forget-me-nots there linger, to full protection brought,
And there bloom purple pansies in many a tender thought.
There love's own roses blossom, as from enchanted ground,
And lavish perfume exquisite, the whole glad year around.

And in that quiet garden - the garden of her heart -
Songbirds are always singing their songs of cheer apart.
And from it floats forever, o'ercoming sin and strife,
Sweet as the breath of roses blown, the fragrance of her life.
