Flowery Garden


They blossom in the flowery garden
elaborating on details of colours
and the sweet fragrance of nature

In the corner
There lies the African Lily
Secret love of the nile
Swimming across many miles

The lily of the valley
whose tears
are washed beneath the earth
stands near the sunflower
who is filled with pride and power

The flowery garden displays
clones of different species
of a thousand lillies
representing life's symbolic gifts

perfumed air
sweet scents
rising from a flowery tent
as the roses auction
their coloured petals

A moment of ecstasy
reveals the orchid as it articulates
its blissful departure to the only Sweat Pea

    I like flower symbolism and I found some of your images strong. I'm not sure whether 'clones' is the right word...it sounds so artificial. And there's an apostrophe in life's. I'm not exactly sure how lillies represent life's symbolic gifts. I'd like to *see* that more clearly, in your poem. I'm interested. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
