Little Purple Flower


I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers!
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
A nerd, or so he must be
Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
And took a picture of me

Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
I have to die, as yesterday my peers
I will do so happily
since someone has seen the beauty in me.

    Great poem about great purple flowers. You might enjoy my poem O BEIJA-FLOR. It's in Portuguese but has the English translation with it.
    Well written. (Report) Reply

    Death is the final destination, I and you, nobody can escape from death. But if we have an element of beauty in us and it is faded without being noticed by someone the death becomes very painful. I congratulate you that beauty of your poems is noticed and appreciated by a large number of your readers. (Report) Reply
