Inspirational Poems – The Master’s Garden

The Master’s Garden

(Inspirational Poems)

The Master had a garden

Filled with flowers everywhere

Each day he’d water, feed and prune

He’d tend each rose with care

And as he’d walk by each flower

His face shone with delight

His eyes would glow, his heart would sing

They were a lovely sight.

But back in one dark corner

A lonely rosebud stood

The water couldn’t reach it

It was weak from want of food.

The rays of sunlight never touched it’s face

It’s warmth it could not feel

And soon the lack took its toll

And the rosebud could not heal.

It slowly began to wither

It’s color began to wane

This rosebud would never blossom

Destined to die in lonely pain.

One day the master was strolling

Through his garden grand and bright

When he noticed in the corner

A small pathetic sight.

The single, withered rosebud

Its head bowed low in shame

For it had brought no pleasure

And felt it was to blame.

But the master with his loving hands

Began to tend the rose

He watered, fed and pruned it

And spoke in sweet repose.

He cleared a path for sunlight

So its warmth the rose would feel

And around the small and weakened stem

Was placed the master’s seal.

The rose began to bud again

It’s flower rich and lush

And soon the single rosebud

Became a glorious bush.

The master made a special place

And put the rosebush there

Its blossoms glistened with beauty

Its fragrance filled the air.

And each day as the master

Would relish in its rebirth

The rosebush bowed in loving gratitude

For the master gave it worth.
