Where I Live

Stephanie over at the Mango Studio inspired me to write my own poem about where I live

Roses in the Long Border

I live where rabbits hide in hedgerows green




and hummingbirds sip sweet nectar





where roses meet me at the door



and stop to say hello



where fairy rings grow




and evening shadows deepen



Rhododendrons and Mahonia

when the magic hour approaches
