The garden

by Bibby Dickie

From tumbleweed to flowers bloomin
It certainly took lots of groomin
tae turn a garden lost and bare
tae somethin where they stop and stare.
The wee flowers bobbin heads all pink
and yellow roses.
Makes ye think
if only we'd ourselves apply
a world well-tended would reply.
It's only love and time folks need
to make such beauty out of weeds.

Burns lover [ rabbie ]
by: Ian fae Irvine

enjoyed the wee poem from this new poet. simple words the way burns used them but to the point which all could understand and appreciate. from ayrshire myself really like the way the writer put it together reminded me of rabbie.
