My Violet Patch

My little violet patch is like

A paradise to me.

The violets growing are so thick

It’s Heaven that I see.

Does any flower withhold such charm

Or power to change our thought

Into a frame of love, wherein

Loves netting we are caught?

Think how a violet cheers a child.

A cluster or bouquet

Makes glad the hearts of lover’s with

Its sky-kissed blue array.

A Grandma feels much younger when

The riches of this patch

Are gathered up by grandpa to

Romance his lifetime catch.

When springtime came I felt God’s Love

Had overflowed my cup

As I beheld the sight of where

My violets came up.

Violet Gebhart – 1957
