We have a Little Garden

Beatrix Potter 1866 (West Brompton, London) – 1943 (Near Sawrey, Lancashire)

WE have a little garden,
A garden of our own,
And every day we water there
The seeds that we have sown.

WE love our little garden,
And tend it with such care,
You will not find a faced leaf
Or blighted blossom there.
