Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


Flower


I am
Given a present
When your husband departs
Or Wives come home
You give me to your lover
When you are in love
I am at birth
I am at death
I am at promotion
I am in all functions
I am in all occasions
I am everywhere in happiness or sorrow
But you throw me when I lose my glow
Nevertheless, I shall always smile
And for you I shall grow

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
