The Bush (poem)

And once again he rises to its call

A bush which in his garden chose to grow

Whose blossoms had all died so long ago

Yet still for it will he surrender all


Recall the springs and how the flowers flow

Alive with wonder seasons would not stall

A source of hope and Joy it did enthrall

A time which he and heaven came to know


Then came the fall the darkness and the gloom

And purpose for the flowers was then gone

And bush and he would enter sorrow’s tomb


So once again he rises to the dawn

She promised her return to see it bloom

And for this dream a lover carries on
