The Garden Of Poems Is Closed

by Samuel De Lemos

Is it true that the
Garden of poems,
The doors are locked
At 1:00 PM on Sundays?

Yes, sir we open
From 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
On the weekends and
From 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
On weekdays.

It’s not 1:00 PM yet and
I’m locked out. I haven’t
Written my poem—I need
Some inspiration.

I just Want to
Walk through the
Garden, observe the
Flowers and walk the
Stone path. Maybe,
Cross that lovely red
Bridge over the fish
Pond over there.

Sorry sir, we’re closed.
We have a wedding and we’re
Clearing everyone out. The
Garden is now reserved for
Another event.
