Parody: An English Country Garden

(inspired by the music of Percy Grainger)


It is a pain

To work in the rain

In an English country garden


And it’s no more fun

Just slogging in the sun

In an English country garden


When you plant some seeds

They’re smothered by the weeds

And the slugs and snails enjoy a feast!


So to get all these flowers

You spend untiring hours

In an English country garden!


Alfred Paice retired to the Isle of Wight after a career in teaching. His amateur writing has always been influenced by his Christian beliefs and his quirky sense of humour.
