by T. E. (Thomas Edward) Brown (1830 - 1897)

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Language: English 
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 very sure God walks in mine.
