Audio Poem – My Garden Secret

      Listen and read-along with this sweet poem by, MaryLou Manzik.

I have a secret, I’ve kept it with care

      Now you be the keeper of this secret I share

My garden is home to a rare reading rabbit 

      Reading alone is his nature and habit

A rabbit imagined from resin and paint

      Quietly reading without a complaint

With a book on his lap, pages firm, not a tear

      And his ears bent back as he sits in a chair

The chair growing moss, in the shade of a fern
     He reads the day long, though a page doesn’t turn
But as night spreads its magic, a dim quiet way

      A page softly turns for the coming new day
