The beauty of my garden

The beauty of my garden
makes me daydream,
bright colours before my eyes
give me pieces of magic.
The perfume of flowers
comes with the breeze,
sweetness is spread
in the luminous scenery.
My soul takes delight
in this enchanted paradise,
I feel enraptured
by caresses of nature.
The singing of birds
brings calm to my mind,
there's an air of peace,
a smile paints my mouth.
A hummingbird plays
with velvety red roses,
butterflies fall in love
with sweet-smelling jasmines.
Great mountains of love
shine on the horizon,
the charm of the place
brightens up my heart.
