Where The Pomegranates Grow--By Sara Kendrick--United States

Where The Pomegranates Grow

Outside the city where lush
Lovely pomegranates grow
The spring has sprung and flowers show
Birds rear their young in tones hushed

The lady weeps in a silent
Strain, love has left a broken heart
In pain, where the pomegranates start
To bloom once again, so vibrant

Hush my love your chance to shine bright
Slipped in on a cloud silver lined
A knight so good and deeply kind
Caught your tears throughout the long night 

He sprinkles them upon the air
Pomegranate bushes sprang up
Their juice forever fills your cup
Arise love, his maiden fair

Receive his love, freed from despair
Outside the city, in rural

Terrain. a perfect scene ~mural

Where pomegranates grow with flair
