„I'll never sing a love song for a love that isn't true. I love how the garden grows
And I love the garden rose.“

—  Becky Stark American singer 1976

Garden Rose
Imagine Our Love (2007)
Kontext: I'll never stop a bullet but a bullet might stop me.
I'll never drink the ocean but the ocean might drink me.
And I'll never raise a portrait to a gentle man in blue
And I'll never sing a love song for a love that isn't true. I love how the garden grows
And I love the garden rose.

„I am very glad to hear that the Gardener has saved so much of the St. foin seed, and that of the India Hemp. Make the most you can of both, by sowing them again in drills... Let the ground be well prepared, and the Seed (St. foin) be sown in April. The Hemp may be sown any where.“

„Yet happy we lived and happy we loved,
And happy we died once more“

—  Langdon Smith, Evolution

Evolution (1895; 1909)
Kontext: Yet happy we lived and happy we loved,
And happy we died once more;
Our forms were rolled in the clinging mold
Of a Neocomian shore.
The eons came and the eons fled
And the sleep that wrapped us fast
Was riven away in a newer day
And the night of death was past.

„The single Rose
Is now the Garden
Where all loves end“

—  T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965

Ash-Wednesday (1930)
Kontext: Lady of silences
Calm and distressed
Torn and most whole
Rose of memory
Rose of forgetfulness
Exhausted and life-giving
Worried reposeful
The single Rose
Is now the Garden
Where all loves end
Terminate torment
Of love unsatisfied
The greater torment
Of love satisfied
End of the endless
Journey to no end
Conclusion of all that
Is inconclusible
Speech without word and
Word of no speech
Grace to the Mother
For the Garden
Where all love ends.

An ax should not lose weight in his hand.
His garden should smell of rotting apples
And grow a fair amount of nettles.“
