Edelweiss - Poem by Susy Evelyne
Part-way down a mountainside -
Above the trees, below the ice -
Something told me loud and clear
That I would find an edelweiss!
An edelweiss is here! I sensed -
Right here, behind that boulder bare...
I left the path, climbed on the rock
And looked behind - and what was there?
An edelweiss! An edelweiss!
Amazing silver double-star.
Iconic emblem of the Alps
For which 'flower-hunters' will roam far.
Time moves on - I cannot say
What led me to that lifetime's find.
Mere chance? Serendipity?
Heaven's blessing? Or a prescient mind?
