More Songs from Vagabondia

by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey


 

IN A GARDEN


 

THOUGHT is a garden wide and old
For airy creatures to explore,
Where grow the great fantastic flowers
With truth for honey at the core.

There like a wild marauding bee

5
Made desperate by hungry fears,
From gorgeous If to dark Perhaps
I blunder down the dusk of years.
