Garden Ornaments

Garden Ornaments

Old trees stood tall and tired

Under the shadow of those trees

New growth struggled to find the sun

Lichens and moss covered the sunless ground

Branches, sticks, and leaves fell all around

Robins and blue jays perched on the old broken wooden fence

Little sparrows and swallows  flittered past the windows

Chubby squirrels played a game of tag

Rabbits hopped and squeezed past the iron gates

Ate grass and left patches of bare ground

A pair of light and dark colored cardinals pecked at the invisible feast

Content with these ornaments  was a heart at peace
