The Garden

By Grace Andreacchi - London, United Kingdom - 18 February 2015



I have brought you into

my garden of pain

Sit down and take your ease

None who enters here

ever leaves


You are welcome in my garden

now -- what will you be?

a stone, a barren corner

a flowering tree?

When you stood at the door

of my great house and knocked

you did not think of this

Surprised? Yes

for despite the testimonials

everyone is


You are like the others

you too have been chosen

so please

sit down

take your ease
