I Found You This Flower


I found you this flower
As I was moving along my way
Though it's nothing special
I hope it brightens your day

I found you this flower
Some say it's called a rose
But I wouldn't know
They smell much the same, to my nose

I found you this flower
Growing just down the block
It was hard to pick
It was growing under a rock

I found you this flower
The seed must have came from Above
But I picked it just for you
To show you some of my love

I found you this flower
I hope you like it really well
And you give me a hug
So that I can tell

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
