There is peace within a garden, a peace so deep and calm,
that when the heart is troubled, it's like a soothing balm.
There's life within a garden, a life that still goes on,
Filling the empty places when older plants have gone.
There's glory in the garden at every time of year.
Spring, summer, autumn, winter, to fill the heart with cheer.
So ever tend your garden, its beauty to increase.
For in it you'll find solace. And in it you'll find peace.

Now there's a sampler after me own heart. ;-) Every time I go to London I visit the V&A to look at all those lovely samplers they have up there but nothing so good (textwise) as this one. Thanks for sharing those words of wisdom.
