Nature's VirginA Poem by J.V. Stanley
This was published in an International Anthology many many moons ago.

Soft fallen words
rain down until
they congregate within a pool at my feet.
Like flowers, their petals fall
They delve into the complexities
that the serpent roots entwine...
Liberating the limbs that spread
wide open within the crumpled grass.
The budding roses open their eyes;
peeping their slender necks through
the soft mattress of soil
mindful of nature's toil
Releasing all ambiguity
Cry bare petals,
here a thousand fall...
