the garden at spanish wells

i am homesick for the garden
pardon me while i press my palms
against the window pane of memory
and gaze out on the camellias at spanish wells
a young girl walks in awe
among thousands of exquisite blooms
she has never seen such a beautiful place
she doesn't know yet
that she will always remember this day
with longing
