I give you... a gate

Monday, 15 June 2009 17:23:58
Not a perfume in a bottle in a box
inside scented paper
tied with ribbon
I give you...  a gate
Which opens into a garden
where you can have all the scents you want
and sights too
or into a meadow
where the grasses are real
and the flowers have not been bought
from garden centres or service stations
and if you are lucky
there will also be
butterflies
