In Longwood

I'm making Christina a scrapbook of our trip to Longwood Gardens. I'm thinking of putting this poem in. What do you think?



Step inside an amazing world,
where Jason and Erin Rachael,
their personalities shine and twirled--
pinks and oranges and yellows and reds;
white roses line the walkway,
where travelers will bow their heads
and sniff the gracious scents.
It was once said,
Pierre du Pont had kept fences
to keep the neighbors out,
guarding from pollution and shouts.

Step outside the amazing world,
where frogs leap among the lily pads,
they float on the water, black and twirled--
dark and light greens float quietly,
waiting for that moment for the leap,
but it will not become a scene so ugly.
Shrimps and fire float by side,
a favorite among guests;
watch the ebbing and flowing of tides
while eating lunch under tree,
this moment will never flee.
