Garden Wall

Garden Wall

A Chapter by Dave Brown




Stone in mortar, built all round

Inside, safe and fertile ground 

For keeping out or keeping in

Tall and strong, for either sin


This barrier forms my safe surround          

Away from concerns too often found           

From forbidden fruit or snake

Until that day, stones crack and break


No roads for me, to stumble down

To play the fool or be the clown

Not step aside when others squawk

Or concerns about idle talk


Why stray beyond my safe abode

Where to travel, down what road

The toils and foils of foolish man

Conspire to keep me where I am


This is the life, which fills my need

And stay I will, to sew my seed

To write my poem, and take my rest

Safe and sound within my nest
