Jasmine gone

by Jem Croucher

Jasmine as a baby
Joined us years ago
Growing with the garden
Summer sun and winter snow
Her fragrance in the long, warm eve
and in the mornings with the dew
gave us a taste of heaven
as she grew and grew and grew
But her shadow hid the sunshine
we love so much this time of year
Something drastic had to happen
So out came the garden shears
Jasmine’s gone now, garden’s bigger
Reclaimed borders. Evening sun
A new found freedom to relax in
When long days are done
