Sheltered Garden (H.D.): The "sheltered garden" H.D. uses as her title symbolizes how individuals conform to the "norm" or the expectation to be normal. This restricts personal and unique expression and instead essentially produces clones (border-pinks, clove-pinks, wax-lilies, herbs, sweetcress). However H.D. realizes this restriction and longs for free expression without judgement and pressure to conform to society's standards. This can be seen when H.D. writes "O for some sharp swish of a branch - / there is no scent of resin in this place, / no taste of bark, of coarse weeds, / aromatic, astringent - / only border on border of scented pinks."
