Ode to the trees

Ode to the trees

A Poem by JanieB

Ode to the trees












The Manor House entrance is gated and secure

Behind lies the magical garden of perfect ness

So envied by many, and loved by more

Beckoning Rhododendron, so pretty in bloom.


Driving down the Laurel lined driveway

So tall and elegant are these trees

At the end lies the Buxus, so perfectly manicured

Topiary, the new art décor of the quintessential English garden.


Entering the maze full of lines of 7 foot high conifers

All twisting and turning

Leading to the centre of this amazingly green maze

To the Maple, full of redness with its awesome coverage of leaves.


The Manor House stands majestically

With its sculptured Buxus in the form twirls

So handsome and elegant, so lovingly created

Awaiting the guests to inspect their beauty.

This reminds me of the stately homes I visited as a child..and recently took my son to the rothchilds residence in Waddesdon a couple of miles from my home...it is a beautiful amazing place...full of decadence from a age go by..the majesty of the rooms is beyond belief..the dining room was wall to wall marble and dressed in old painting and mirrors 12 foot high..it was breaktaking..you captured the essense of that..

Sounds like the old time homes in Great Britain and their lovely kept gardens..Here we call them yards...a garden is where we plant vegetables. Nice write,,lol and God bless..valentine

I love trees love their majestic splendour, and this poem of yours enhances that feeling of walking amongst the beauty of creation.

But I have never heard of a Buxus tree?

Excellent view. Again, reminding me of the age of man when he splendored at god's gifts. Where something is personified in verse and given glory and feeling
