Glittering Ghost of Gardens Past

Glittering ghost of gardens past,

you contain grain, a hope that will last;

though you are crippled, a Tiny Tim breed,

when Scrooge-Winter passes, you’ll scatter good seed.

    I was thinking of A Christmas Carol today and the idea of the SPIRIT of Christmas. You have added a new dimension to the story for me with these words and your photo.

    I love the Tiny Tim reference especially–I’ve been watching A Christmas Carol for several nights now (mostly the George C Scott one, but also an earlier one)–I can never get enough of it, though the Ghost of “Yet to Come” is so scary!!

    Great poem, Melody. But the photo gives me the shivers! Lol! It looks like the Terminator. πŸ˜‰

    Hang on garden! We’re cheering for it! Thanks Melody, for blessing us!

    Spring is so indescribably sweet for the long winter – I think heaven will be all the sweeter for this life, too! πŸ™‚

    Definitely looking at a ghost of days past here.
    Perfect words for the season to go with an all time fave – A Christmas Carol πŸ™‚
