- Title: The Garden
- Artist: Its Meark
"As the sun shines in early morning,
and dew percolates the surface of things.
Iris sparkles blue
and glows its yellow heart.
Japanese maples thrust leaves from sheaths,
Rose shoots take off in new directions
from spiny winter branches,
and poppies spread wheels of leaves
gathering strength from long tap roots
for splendor in May.
Tiny red buds open on trees
still hung with dark dried pods,
and flowering pears burst in foam,
white petals drifting in cool air."
