A lovely poem by Dorothy Frames Blomfield Gurney who loved gardens.
My grandmother had this poem on a little plaque in her garden. It was one of the three writings my family had that I remember clearly, that gave me so much and shaped me as a human being.
The kiss of the sun for pardon.
The song of the birds for mirth.
One is nearer God's heart in a garden.
Than anywhere else on earth.
by Dorothy Franes Blomfield Gurney
