In The Garden With God

rose garden

I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day. ” (from A Garden of Peace) — F. Frankfort Moore

In The Garden With God

-Linda Lee Lyberg

In the garden with God
As the wind softly blows
I bow my head, awed
By the beauty of the rose.

As the wind softly blows
In harmony the rustling leaves
By the beauty of the rose
For nature gently weaves.
In harmony the rustling leaves
Suffused with their colors pure
For nature gently weaves
A song that will endure.
Suffused with their colors pure
I bow my head, awed
A song that will endure
In the garden with God.

  1. Beautful! Both the picture and the words.

    Reminds me of the classic hymn “In the Garden”:

    “I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses,
    And the voice I hear falling on my ear
    The Son of God discloses.

    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own;
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.”

    Your poem also brought back to mind a post I wrote a while ago but had forgotten about: “Soul Spring Magic”.

    By the way, where do you find all these beautiful and interesting pictures?

  2. This made me think of my mother, whose favorite hymn was “I Come to the Garden” and a little sign she had in her garden which said “One is nearer God’s heart in the garden, than anywhere else on earth”.
