The Veriest School



A Garden is a lovesome thing,

God wot!

Rose plot,

Fringed pool,

Fern’d grot

The veriest school

Of peace; and yet the fool

Contends that God is not

Not God!  In gardens!  When the eve is cool?

Nay, but I have a sign;

‘Tis a very sure God walks in mine.

~ Thomas Edward Brown (1830-1897)
