Just yesterday he made giraffes,
a dragonfly and circus clowns;
he loves the way each tourist laughs.
The clever keeper of the grounds
creates his topiary art;
a lifetime here, he still astounds.
Today his cannons will impart
reminders of the battles past,
of conquests made with grit and heart.
His garden actors will be cast
in parts portrayed in pinks and greens
by shrubs and flora holding fast.
One walks along organic scenes-
Jack has published over 350 poems in his career, many accompanied by his own photography. He specializes in a view of the commonplace and Americana.
