Sing of gardeners, who nurture beauty,
Invested in the source of civilization!
Xerophytes or hydrophytes, their plants
Take root and flourish by their will, not chance,
Yielding a sweet harvest of sensation.

No artist has more exigent a duty
In capturing the radiance of Creation,
Nor one more apt to make the spirit dance,
Earth turned to human song through cultivation.
