Flowers From the Garden, Flowers From the Store

Dear neighbor friend,

I watered your garden when you were gone

out of friendship, and there is no need

to bring me flowers for this deed.

Yet you are kind and I welcome your gift.

But you have so much sun next door –

I covet the colorful bounty of your yard.

So next time, when I water your landscaping

bring me flowers from your garden,

not flowers from the store.

Their glory is not less but more.
