This was sent to me by Barbie:

THE GARDEN

I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses..........

Spring is just around the corner - Here are some ideas for your garden

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS:

1. Peace of mind

2. Peace of heart

3. Peace of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH:

1. Squash gossip

2. Squash indifference

3. Squash grumbling

4. Squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE:

1. Lettuce be faithful

2. Lettuce be kind

3. Lettuce be patient

4. Lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN WITHOUT TURNIPS:

1. Turnip for meetings

2. Turnip for service

3. Turnip to help one another

TO CONCLUDE OUR GARDEN WE MUST HAVE THYME:

1. Thyme for each other

2. Thyme for family

3. Thyme for friends

WATER FREELY WITH PATIENCE AND CULTIVATE WITH LOVE

THERE IS MUCH FRUIT IN YOUR GARDEN BECAUSE

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW. . .

(thanks Barbie)!

Thanks Barbie and Taunia! I'll have to save this one for next Spring.

Jackie, explain the altered book and how you plan to use the poem. (If you don't mind sharing your thoughts)
Thanks!
