Dash Black

A Flower By All Means

In the morning breezes
When the air almost freezes
Flowers blossom easily

Dew covered and wet
They come out of bed
Then the sun rises warming off the dew dry
Its time for the butterflies to fly

On goes the day but Alas!
The sun rises still
Growing ever hot like it will burst
Until overhead it settles ill

When Heaven lets the fireball obnoxiously low
Even the most beautiful flowers shrink
Thus a flower by all means falls
In the face of scorching heat!

    So lovely poem about flowers wilting under the
    scorching heat. Very observant of nature and its
    effects on plants. The sun has no mercy on those
    beautiful petals. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply
