O, come stroll in my beauty


                                                                                         The Rose Garden of Richard Lee Orey

                                                                                           The St. Francis of Assisi Fountain



            A swing for my great-granddaughter Reyanna Sage Orey                                                       


                                                                        A Walk In My Garden



                                                                                                      O, come stroll in my beauty,

                                                                                                      Sniff the fragrance of my air,   

                                                                                                      Come pause at my fountain,

                                                                                                      Enjoy all without care.

                                                                                                      Peer into my gazer, 

                                                                                                      Mirrored images so bright:

                                                                                                      My purpleleaf plum tree,

                                                                                                      Even roses at night.


                                                                                                      See the cross on Mount Helix,

                                                                                                      The Lagunas afar,

                                                                                                      Hear the whir of my hummingbird

                                                                                                      Greeting morning's last star.

                                                                                                      Linger 'neath my tall willow,

                                                                                                      Showing grace in her style,

                                                                                                      Drink deep of the moment,

                                                                                                      No matter the while.

                                                                                                      Then visit Fat Buddha

                                                                                                      To offer a prayer

                                                                                                      Giving thanks in enchantment 

                                                                                                      Of life everywhere.

                                                                                                      'Cause a walk in my garden,

                                                                                                      'Tis said and 'tis true ,

                                                                                                       Refreshes the soul

                                                                                                       For God walks here, too.

Absolutely gorgeous, one can almost feel the peacefulness of a walk through your garden Richard...your lovely poem is enhanced by eloquence of you reading it.

Reviewed by Richard Orey 4/23/2010

Richard, I tried to write a review of this poem, but it wouldn't accept it, saying I had previously written a review. However, I hadn't. This is what I said:

Richard, you are a man of many talents. Your rose garden is absolutely gorgeous. I can not find the words to express my perception of just how beautiful it is, but your excellent poetic description says what I can not say.

I can remember back when you said to me that you weren't into writing poetry (or something similar). You've overcome those early hurdles by leaps and bounds and are penning poetry that touches the passions and soul of readers.

Indeed, to enable you to create such beauty as your colorful roses, God must walk in your garden.




These representations of your garden are just divine. And your poem does them justice as well. To walk through this scene and to sit a spell on one of the benches and to survey the surrounding hills is like a bit of heaven on earth, I think. Love it.

Hugs, J'nia

Gardens are there to remind us of that Garden of Eden that God gave to us. Can we anytime soon reverse the tendency and go back to what if was?
A gem of a poem, and it was like hearing Jimmy Steward's reading it.

I love the perspective this was written from, allowing us to hear the "voice" of the garden. The author is attentive to every detail, every aspect of the garden -- the sky, the environs, the plants, the statuary, and even the air -- regaling the reader with a 360 degree experience of the subject. The structure and style of the poem lend themselves to the topic, leading the reader easily through each stanza with the easy flow of the rhyme. Exquisitely crafted. Thank you for sharing.
