Royal Path

Monet The Iris Garden at Giverny.jpg

‘Royal Path’

Your subjects arrange

to greet you,

each purple plumed and hatted head


in reverence.

They have arranged the sunlight

just so

for you,

a warm glow

to grace your crown.


to the regal occasion.

Walk slowly,

through your garden of delights

with knowing purpose.

The iris will lead the way.

“The Iris Garden at Giverny” Monet.
