    IF I BUILD YOU A LOVELY GARDEN


    If I build you a lovely garden
    you won't come to visit me in mine
    And then I'd be so lonely
    that I would waste away and pine

    When you don't visit me ---- in my garden
    a strange sadness ---- comes over me
    My garden ---- although it is lovely
    becomes ---- a lonely place to be

    My garden ---- is filled with beauty
    And I have flowers ---- of evey kind
    But when you are far ---- away from me
    you are always ---- on my mind

    And so ----- I sit all the places
    All the places ---- where you sat
    And then tears --- would start to fall
    as I wonder --- where you're at

    So, I won't build ---- you a lovely garden
    Oh! No! ---- I won't do that
    Because ---- I would whine and cry
    just like ---- a spoiled brat!

    No, my garden --- will be your home
    where you ---- can run and roam
    Or you ----can just stand still
    just like ---- a garden gnome

    A little garden gnome!
    Oh, yes! ---- Yes, that's it!
    It's an extremely ---- good idea
    and I'm glad ---- I thought of it!

    My very own ---- garden gnome!
    It's very clever ----- you must admit
    I'll find a place ---- for you to stand.
    Perhaps ---- by the firepit

    Yes ----- by the firepit!
    'Cause that's where ----- I like to sit
    And it'll keep you ----- warm and toasty
    because ---- it's always lit

    Yes, you'll be ----- my garden gnome
    My little ---- garden elf
    And I'll keep you ---- in my garden
    so I can have you ---- for myself

    Fun, playful, laced with a fantastical love. The mythological creatures of elves and gnomes are great for this. I still want to eventually set up a pond in my yard somewhere.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Kudos--

    there's a mystery and playfulness here that's delightful.
