IF YOU REFUSE MY FLOWER..


A flower will bloom
In my small garden
On my plant too one day
And I shall offer
The very first one
To you, my dear.

My flower will have many petals,
Its colour will be that turns
You envious of my garden
And its fragrance will traverse
Beyond your stretches.
It is certain.

But if you refuse my flower
What shall I do?
I am pondering over it...
Even after you reject my flower
You will perhaps visit
My garden that is on a knoll with
Its plants creeping unto the sky.

And on your visit, I am afraid
You will nip many a bud at once.
My flower will then frown at me.

Then I shall cry unto the skies
Till the stars invite me
To send my flower to them for ever.

If you refuse my flower,
It will smile from the skies...

    I agree with Kanav's comment, that makes me envious of your garden who has beautiful flowers.
    Valsa's comments too I am adding it..Who will deny a flower of such exquisite beauty and fragrance! Don't worry, there would be many takers for it! So it won't go wasted! !
    Valarie's comments too looks beautiful..
    A beautiful flower of a poem - who could refuse such a flower....

    Sir I am just confused what I should comment especially after seeing all these lovely comments. So I am too putting a stamp on it....Beautiful poem. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
