It’s nearly impossible to write
About the garden in July
Bursting like a pirate’s chest
Under a searing sky
Just when you find a flower
Sparkling sapphire blue
Your eye’s distracted by the sight
Of brilliant gold ones, too.
There’s ruby red ones over here
And ivory over there
Garnet, topaz, amethyst
Treasures everywhere
It’s impossible to choose
Among the floral gems
Filling my Aladdin’s cave
With jewelry on stems
