A garden is not a garden unless it has got a fence
Where you can do your gardening and talk some commonsense.
I said this to Henrietta just the other day,
While we were having tea, of course, she said I entirely agree.
A garden is a private place for you to share with those you trust,
Not for all and sundry to look at when they're going to catch a bus.
I said, no a garden's not a garden unless it's got a fence.
People walking by talking a load of gibbering nonsense.
Henrietta said yes I entirely agree,
Why should people be able to look on your lovely scenery.
Yes all the lovely colours and beauty to behold.
Henry said, do you know Henrietta, I think I am getting a cold.
A garden's no good without a fence
It lets all the wind come sailing in,
It knocks all your prize flowers down,
Do you know Henrietta a person just can't win.
Another cup of tea? said Henrietta. If I may said Henry,
I'll have a biscuit too, then perhaps I'll fix the fence.
Henrietta said I entirely agree with you.
A garden's not a garden if it hasn't got a fence.
Just had a new fence put up at the end of my garden
so thought this poem, was appropriate LOL
