Under Orion's starry sky
I lie in the moonlit garden
Wondering where to cast my eye
For all that I see is heaven
Oh why does it have to end
I wish we could still pretend
You're near, just around the bend
In the gardens of Sampson and Beasley

Last time we were in this place
Your face had a certain sadness
And oh how I've wondered since
What you've done with all that sadness
Oh why did it have to end
I wish we could still pretend
Our love was around the bend
In the garden of Sampson and Beasley

Under Orion's starry sky
I lie in the moonlit garden
Wondering when I close my eyes
If I'll ever find my heaven
Oh why will it never end
These days where I still pretend
Our love just around the bend
In the gardens of Sampson and Beasley

    General CommentBella Madrona is a 26 year old garden located at the edge of the urban growth boundary, buffered from civilization by a wetland upstream from two wildlife refuges. It is totally organic in practice and philosophy, and has become a haven for all sorts of insects, reptiles, birds and mammals. The wild area contains maturing specimens of unusual trees and shrubs in a very peaceful setting, belying its proximity to suburbia.

    General CommentIt is perhaps about two separated lovers; one of whom is no longer on the earth, maybe in heaven. The one left behind on the earth is lamenting his/her love, still hopeful for the other one to appear around the corner one day.
