793. My Garden

Thomas Edward Brown. 1830-1897

A GARDEN is a lovesome thing, God wot!
  Rose plot,
  Fringed pool,
Fern'd grot--
  The veriest school
  Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not--
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
  Nay, but I have a sign;
  'Tis very sure God walks in mine.
