A Study of Flowers
I could admire the sunflower
for standing tall in summer’s heat,
with a great face and petals bright
and a place to sit in the limelight.
A king with no killer to fear
seems like a flower to revere…
But I would focus on the crocus
hunched up so short in melting snow,
because it may not be so tall
but it still has farthest to fall.
To fight the cold and stay to grow
is more brave than we’ll ever know.
