Poem - Beautiful Garden

The poem “Beautiful Garden” was inspired by a meme that included the poetry line, “The graveyard is a beautiful garden”, from “Rhenish Autumn”  by Guillaume Apollinaire.


Beautiful Garden

The garden is spun from many lives
beauty gained from tears spawned
now dried upon the fair grounds
a park thriving by sowed bones

set in rows or scattered piles
in monuments from distant times
representing ancestor’s rest
settled in their final home

mourning has been put aside
most all would have their time resolved
by the years that etch their wear
on stone blooms above the earth

blossoming fields of cold stone
still the sight will warm the hearts
of survivors now left behind
viewing the bygone as divine.
