A sweet child of stone
Sits quietly in a garden.
He drew me close
As though he spoke to me.
I hear him sigh
For he is bored.
He cannot play like me,
This sweet child of stone.
I looked on the Internet for a poem that would go with my photo, and I couldn't find one. I sometimes sit down in a quiet moment and a see if a few lines will flow. It's not perfect but I hope you like it.
I found this sweet little boy on a large urn on top of a pedestal tucked away in one corner of the garden. I almost missed it as it was hiding behind a hedgerow. I spotted the top and curiosity being what it is I walked over to find this sweet little boy.
Last Sunday Gregg and I drove two hours south to visit a place we discovered a while back. I shared a post about it at the time. We visited The Lewis Ginter Botanic Garden in Richmond. It's one of the nicest places to walk around. You can click here to visit their home page and if you click here you can see a map of the garden. We visited later in the summer back then and I know we will be visiting again, probably towards the end of the year as I would like to see it during the holiday season when everything is lit up.
I will be sharing more posts later on but in the meantime you can click on the label below this post for Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.
