A poem by: Ben Dunk. 1977.






We have a garden filled with flowers

warmed by the Sun and watered by the rain showers

Where hollyhocks grow as high as a man

and Robins nest in an old tin-can

There I gambol with my love

meditating on the power from above

bonding us together like paired dove


Pausing for a hug and kisses

dreaming of a life overflowing with blisses

You are lovely and no one could resist

a press in the palm of your fist

Snuggling together bared-skin-close

your warm forehead touches the tip of my nose

mingling your musk with a perfumed rose



The World goes by unbeknowing

of our sanctuary amidst the seed sowing

Only the birds and bees witness our fun

we peacefully lie there in the sun

Nothing bad to spoil the peace

or halt the mutual joy of love’s release

when nature shows us life cannot cease
