Sunday in the Garden

Sunday in the garden
Bluebirds sing a happy song

The cardinals in the maple tree
Join in to sing along

The Bumble Bees are busy
Where the roses like to climb

As the Blue jays eat the berries
Growing on the vines

The Cottontail is hopping home
But she’ll be back again

And the squirrels are all playing
Try to catch me if you can

I leave peanuts for the chipmunks
And other creatures great and small

And every time I leave them there
They always eat them all

Is it a symphony or a circus?
It’s all so magical to me

Sunday in the garden
What a lovely place to be
