Love Garden

It’s springtime.
The season of roses has come
But what is that I see blossoming in your garden, my love?
Is not your garden overrun with poison ivy rooted in offence?

It’s springtime.
The season of roses has come
Would you rather harvest poison or love?
Tear out the roots now, my darling
Before they ruin the whole garden

It’s harvest season.
Your real enemy is hiding behind the shadows,
Playing hide and seek
Don’t be fooled by his tricks.
