Bouquet of flowers at my door


I wonder what he gave them for

Array of color, blossoms sweet

I name aloud each one to greet

Chrysanthemum you are my friend

Carnation you intrigue

Acacia, per chance a veiled, burning love for me?

Apple blossoms are so tempting to your every bribe

Ambrosia begs I must return each gesture I ascribe

Columbine is it your folly of foolishness at best?

Anemone I fear you, forsaken love I cannot bear

Amaryllis I embrace you and all the drama you portray.

Baby’s breath you mingle throughout each tender bloomamaryllis-lily-10784476

Emitting purity and promise as it’s fragrance fills the room

A bouquet so full of beauty, yet with messages unclear

More oft’ it takes a single spray of red rose to endear
