Nearer Gods heart in a garden



The Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world,
And He set there an angel warden
In a garment of light enfurled.

So near to the peace of Heaven,
That the hawk might nest with the wren,
For there in the cool of the even
God walked with the first of men.

And I dream that these garden-closes
With their shade and their sun-flecked sod
And their lilies and bowers of roses,
Were laid by the hand of God.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,--
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.

For He broke it for us in a garden
Under the olive-trees
Where the angel of strength was the warden
And the soul of the world found ease.

- Dorothy Frances Gurney -

  13. Du hast Recht..., so ein schöner Post, so rundum stimmig mit den Texten, den Collagen, den Fotos... (Du postest so viel, dass ich es nicht schaffe, alles zu lesen und anzuschauen, hab Dank für den Tipp!) Un hab Dank für dein Angebot. Es wird sicher werden! Ich hoffe - mal wieder - ab September weniger zu arbeiten. Dann gibt es auch wieder kleine Reisen ins Blaue und an vertraute Plätze und ich werde dich fragen. Meine Mutter lebte in Wernigerode, aber sie ruht mit dem Vater auf dem Friedhof in Treseburg. Herzlich Ghislana
