In the poem "Garden Snake" by Muriel L Sonne, the speaker talks about an incident that happened when he was a child. He sees a snake in the garden and gets scared. He runs away thinking that it might be dangerous. The poem talks about how misconceptions can mislead a person. The speaker's mother tells him that the garden snake is harmless and good. It eats insects around the place, thereby protecting them from transmitting diseases. The speaker realises his mistake and allows the snake to pass by. He realises that no creature can cause harm unless it is disturbed or attacked. The speaker emphasises on co-existing peacefully with all creations.
