“Flower Poem” 

Flower, flower, do you know,

Eternal Beauty you bestow?

In pews of red, green, & blue,

O, do you know who made you?

For Beauty would like Moses roam,

Without a brain to call its home,

Had you not been seen by me,

If not for me, what would you be?

Nor larking, lolling, living there,

Of Cruelty are you aware,

& never once the question “Why?”

Until your colors reached my eye.

I give you Beauty as a gift,

Cruelty I pass & thrift,

& in return you give to me:

The beads of Pleasure’s rosary.
