An August Midnight


                                I

A shaded lamp and a waving blind,

And the beat of a clock from a distant floor:

On this scene enter -- winged, horned, and spined --

A longlegs, a moth, and a dumbledore;

While 'mid my page there idly stands

A sleepy fly, that rubs its hands. . . .


                                II

Thus meet we five, in this still place,

At this point of time, at this point in space.

-- My guests besmear my new-penned line,

Or bang at the lamp and fall supine.

'God's humblest, they!' I muse.  Yet why?

They know Earth-secrets that know not I.


Thomas Hardy


An outdoor

community center & garden sanctuary


In this hurried world, the Garden of Ideas is a place to slow down.   To stop, look, and listen.  There is so much more to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, and to feel.    Wake up your senses in this place and become more alive.


Whether you take a self-directed stroll or participate in one of our programs, we hope you will leave renewed.
