Lovely Flower (poem)

A lovely flower whose home was a tree

Its beauty and charm it shared with the rest

There shared the sun in life richly blessed

Truly the best one hopes all would be


Each morning’s promise sweet music of birds

Soft kisses of lovers were whispers in breeze

The stars in the heavens would marvel at these

Those days those flowers beyond any words


Then came the fall when colors did show

And one by one the flowers took flight

In fragrant beauty they passed in delight

Except the flower which would not let go


Now death for its flowers soon happened by

And claimed the flower which never did fly
