Altered Dawn (poem)

What is this flower dares to share your name

As if it had some beauty to compare

To all the wonders still lay hidden there

Where shadow have no hope against your flame


What is this scent of shame which tames the air

Which doesn’t share your flair or will to frame

A scent of memories which are the same

Amid a world bereft and unaware


Return you dreamer of an altered dawn

A soul still drifts upon the morning’s light

With eyes still lost amid the sparkling dew


What flower dares what dreams are built upon

The scent of it adds tears to my delight

Whose dreams are made of memories of you

How different, comparing a woman's stunning beauty to the name of a lovely flower. Original Martin, the poem showed thought and love. I voted up, shared and pinned it.
