Seasonless Garden

By
Never planted, yet blooming
Blackberries that didn't dry up in winter, and
Calla lilies that kept their heads above the snow.
Holly and ivy that thrived in July.
A trysting spot for lovers,
Drawn by the smell of roses, even in December.
A black-haired boy and a fair-haired girl,
Spy on each other through wildflowers.
Feeding each other berries,
Until their lips and fingers were stained red as blood.

This is pretty good. It has lots of good imagery and unlike most of the poems I see on here, some nice flow. Could use a few fillers, but all in all, it was a deep, cutesy little poem to read. I made me smile, keep it up (:
