Nature’s Gifts: Pamela Brown


May you, just once or twice in your lifetime,
see something infinitely rare and strange
and beautiful.
I wish you delight of plants – the small miracles
of graft and cutting, seed and bulb and corm. Of
new life from the earth.
I wish you the gloom of the garden in winter
– and, after months of anticipation,
the small green signs of spring.

  1. Such beauty to drift through my head as I put it on my pillow and drift off to sleep. Thanks! M&M
