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.

GARDEN.
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 IT’S HEAVEN IN HOPE-GARDEN.
***
SMILING FACES,
A WARM EMBRACE, MEETING AND GREETINGS
ALL OVER THE PLACE, TITTLE-TATTLE FOR TWO, LOVERS SAYING I LOVE YOU, AND IT’S HEAVEN IN HOPE GARDEN.
