Flowers In A Vase


Floral displays of every colour catch the eye
Lilys of white adorn a coffin when we say goodbye
Oranges and yellows reflect the mood of summer
Wild meadow flowers inspire a song sung by a busking strummer
Everyone just loves to see the woodland bluebells
Roses in a garden give off aromatic smells
Spring bursts into life with the sight of snowdrops

Intricate petals decorate baskets for sale in garden shops
New buds burst forth to reveal pink and white blossom

A bride in white holds flowers in hand as she prepares to toss'em

Varieties so wide ranging make it difficult to choose
Accompanied by chocolates they make a loved ones day
Surprise a friend with a flowery gift, what have you got to lose
Each lovingly hand picked posy helps chase the blues away

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
