A Garden of Eden

The garden once a battleground

Between her and the southwest desert

This Texas girl told nothing will grow

In this scorching desolate place

But with her strong will she persisted

Never giving up on her dream

Now today what once thought a silly folly

A beautiful garden of Eden thrives, lush and green

The likes of which this dry desert has never seen
