We build too many walls and not enough bridges.

Sweet dreams, owls and larks alike.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Well I guess that gate hasn't been used in a while!
I love overgrown gates in old walls they remind me of the secret garden, always wanted to find one but never haveConfused

Re:
Fennie's Avatar There's a secret garden in your mind,
Which no-one else but you can find.
A secret gardener too, perhaps
One of those young or handsome chaps
Everything there to meet your needs
Just keep the garden free from weeds.

Imagination is this garden's name
And no two days need be the same
But do heed this my darling daughter:
Imagination needs both food and water
The secret garden otherwise will shrivel
And life reduced to drudgery and drivel.

Fennie's Avatar 'Fraid so. It sort of came as I was looking for something to say. Thanks for the compliments. My head will swell.

Bear of Little Brain, that's me - 'I find that's they best way of writing poetry,' said Pooh. 'Just lettings things come.'

It needs polishing a bit - the last line isn't quite right.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Oooh - what an honour!

Here goes - I think it's better

FEEDING YOUR IMAGINATION

There's a secret garden in your mind,
Which no-one else but you can find.
A secret gardener too, perhaps
One of those young or handsome chaps;
Everything there to meet your needs
Just keep the garden free from weeds.

Imagination is this garden's name
And no two days need be the same
But do heed this, my darling daughter:
Imagination needs both food and water
The secret garden otherwise will shrivel
And life become just drudgery and drivel.

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar Fennie, I love the poem!

I drive by this 'gate' on the way to my eye doctor's office and always wonder at this solution to guiding visitors in another direction.
