To whom it may concerned;
Hope Garden needed a "Theme." The poem below was wrtten by myself in the mid-sixties. However, no music producer took it on. I copyrighted it and kept it all these years. I would be delighted if it is adopted as the Hope Garden Theme-song.
The sun comes up over the hills
Dew on the grass shinning like silk
Flowers awaken from their sleep
And it's heaven in Hope Garden.
THERE ARE DAISIES,
DAFFODILS ROESE IN BLOOM, NIGHTINGALES SINGING IN TUNE,
HUSH WINDS WHISPERING THROUGH THE TREES,
AND ITS HEAVEN IN HOPE-GARDEN.
A WARM EMBRACE, MEETING AND GREETINGS
ALL OVER THE PLACE, TITTLE-TATTLE FOR TWO, LOVERS SAYING I LOVE YOU, AND ITS HEAVEN IN HOPE GARDEN.

Thank you for your wonderful verse and thoughts Francis. I have shared this the Board, Management and Staff at Hope. We are committed to Bring Back the Hope, to what you remember and perhaps even a little bit more.
