The Flower and the Tree (poem)

A flower wilted waiting ‘neath a tree

Whose gentle shade became a shroud of pain

Which drained away at hopes which may remain

Of memories of brighter days to see


The flower caught the eyes of lover’s heart

Who brought her out to dance away a truth

He loved her so he swore they’d never part

And together they revisited their youth


Soon tree which was the source of flower’s strain

Thought why should she be happier than me

Who freed her eyes from possibility

That from my boughs there’s anything to gain


Confused the flower returned to its place

And brought her sunshine there to offer grace

The girl herself being a flower may probably stay in place too. Beautiful theme!
