This poem, much-loved by many so I'm told, was published in 2010 by AMS Educational Publishers Ltd, Leeds.  Teachers and children chose this and almost 400 other poems for publication in 5 books. I hope you like it too.  Josie

My mother's garden (1963)

Blessed is he whose eyes can see

God’s handiwork on land and sea.

     Whose eyes perceive in flower and bird,

     In music, song and written word,

          Freshness, grace, intrinsic pleasure;

          God’s gifts for us to love and treasure.
