Let leaf be the life
I like flowers smiling to me in glee,
But I love greens more on a greying tree.
They seem to say: bread feeds, and flowers soul,
Who breathes life that life remains one whole?
I do like flowers for their fragrant smiles,
But ‘tis leaves that liven up miles and miles,
Imagine flowers fighting for their worth
Without leaves greening up fast greying Earth!
But few can understand the smile of green
Unless forced in barrens of woodlands lean,
It is the green that there’re flowers and fruits,
That there are seeds that new life can take roots.
I know, flowers boast of rainbow’s whole range,
Who gives green heart, who does this boast challenge?
