Quiet Gardens Keep

Quiet Gardens Keep

A Poem by Tate Morgan

Her face is like the rising sun.


Her face is like the rising sun

who's light cast shadow on me

In darkness far and silent

where no one else could see

A mind and wit full from dreams

shines bright in summer's embrace

Close beside some ancient column

the wind leaves love's sweet trace

Her lips do scream to love me

in the small quiet gardens keep

Kissing my cheek each evening

before I lay my head to sleep

In a garden long ago we walked and spoke of a future. Reality became a much better predictor of happiness

Your welcome
Nice job describing your lover and partner in life with touches of the surroundings.
The garden has always been my favorite spot in the sun to read and write--too bad I don't have one now.

Wow this is beautiful. It reminded me of the secret garden. One which we all would like to get away to once in a while..if only I had a secret garden.

Very easy to read because it flowed so smoothly. You took me back to my old homestead's garden with this one.

I understand, there is a garden in my past where I walked with my special someone, oftimes at night, I dream of the garden and my brown eyed man.
