Rhododendron Bush

Updated on November 3, 2010

 

Rhododendron bush you stand outreached~

 At the corner of the porch~

Rhododendron bush like as a rose you~

Blossom like a gaily lit torch.

 

My father has cut you back at times~

To find you grow back much more plush and grand~

You are a wonder for all the seasons~

You grace this humble land.

 

Hardy you locate to almost any place~

Lowest to higher peaks~

Your color is so vibrant~

No one seeing you could weep.

 

Birds hide in your bountiful leafy nest~

Your bark the cat’s scratching post~

As well the humming birds~

Use you as a dinning host.

 

There is nary a time you sleep~

For winter knows you too~

Still found worthy when snow tries to cover you.

 

Although noted for your beautiful blossoms they can also concede~

To the ornamental leaves of varying green~

Waxy and luscious they are held also in high esteem.

 

Rhododendron bush you are well established~

You stand your ground firm~

So nothing could ever take your place~

Roots dug down deep so no one will be allowed to take your turn.

 

Rhododendron bush you stand outreached~

 At the corner of the porch~

Rhododendron bush like as a rose you~

Blossom like a gaily lit torch.

      Oh am I the first ???Brilliant !!!

      I loved this one Lisa as my Mamgu had a huge Rhododendron shrub/tree the height and width of her house and your poem also did justice.

      Voted up and wishing you a great weekend.

      Hi! do you have a commitment for the 4th of July? Our llttie town of Gearhart Oregon desperately needs music for our short and sweet parade.
