Unconscious Garden Valentine

I just noticed after fifteen years
All unconsciously I swear
I have been trying to strike
At one end of the garden
Some kind of Asian temple note
The Bodhi tree in the imperial
Blue pot the square wide-lipped
Chinese red one with its mane
Of yellow chrysanthemums
The trellis all around
While at the other end
A Western desert scene
Vaguely of Greece or Palestine
An aging orange tree with
Blue Vinca that doth shine
