Black-eyed Susans For You, Susie...... [friends; flowers for a woman; SHORT]


Paul and I are not sure if the flowers’ “eyes” are truly black or brown,
but, if we could, we’d use a bunch of them....to fashion you a gown.
Then no matter what month it was, or wherever you might be,
you and Paul could look at you, in your gorgeous gown, and happy you could be.

.....well, you could imagine it at least....with no bees buzzing!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i have a good friend, Paul, who has a good friend, Susie. i sent them my A Mouse In My Stomach poem not long ago and Paul said he liked it better than Susie did. (it WOULD take a certain kind of person to appreciate it) SO i asked what kind of poem Susie would like and i was told a poem about black-eyed susans. that is the story. they both struggle with mental health issues.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
