ImageA Flowery Love Note

© 2012 Mollie Pearce McKibbon

O my Lily of the valley,

Violet me kiss your tulips

In the morning glory.

Though Lilac a basket of gold

Hyacinth you candy tuft,

So, forget-me-not

Forsythia my solomons seal:

That Iris to be your honeysuckle,

The clover to freesia from my anemones –

And gardenia from creeping Phlox and Daffodil.

To whom  I say, “Begonia dandelions!”

And soothe your bleeding heart.

I may yet periwinkle,

But fuschia not lupine for me.

The coral bells are ringing and the rooster crocus

 I sing with euphorbia,

Dyanthus for your love.

Poet’s P.S. – I’m gladiolus is over.
