Ode to Flowers

A Poem by Claire Lorraine

Ode to Flowers

I sing a song of love and admiration to the flowers of my garden:

Lovely Lilacs vibrant & tame, elegant & wistful in one refrain

Royal Iris a stately lady regal & wise, she stands amid those that reign and rise

Pure Gardenia untainted and true, she is incandescent as her hue

Ruffled Sweet-Pea twirls and sways like a little girl’s laughter and springtime’s rays

Wishful Wisteria climbs and leans down raining bliss over man’s crown

Sweet Snowdrops found are winter’s treasure & hope renowned

Delightful Daffodils playful enter the field and prepare the way for the floral guild

Precious Peony blushes they say, as she offers a kiss like a bride on her wedding day

Constant Camellia durable in winter dainty once plucked withers away, yet ancient stands & fresh blooms are born anew today

Magnificent Magnolia glistens high above as she greets the morning sun

Tender Tulips a prism of colors, a rainbow made low for the human hand to hold and glow

Lily of the Valley so simple & sweet is both fae’s wells and May’s bells

Ravishing Rose beauty perfected in a myriad of ways, exquisite goddess of the garden always

Thank you Julie!
I like to spend a lot of time in my imaginary garden :)
Prettier than a sunset darlin. You've got talent in a big way. The alliteration shines through this and the overall feeling captured me from beginning to end. A fine poem.
