Passing a newly painted trellis,
wild roses clinging to each square,
an old-world fragrance
perfumes the vaporous air.
In a pampered garden,
grow deep purple pansies and scarlet geraniums.
Bonnets of sweet peas
stretch toward a late summer sun.
The gazebo, entwined by morning glories,
offers rain-washed benches.
We bite into fresh-picked green apples.
