Little Flower...


Little flower, little flower
Fragile, delicate rose
Little flower, stands so tall
Do you not ever fear to fall?
Little flower, pale colored thing
Let me sip the sweet nectar within
Little flower, perfectly still
Beauty like yours must be shared
Little flower, come sweet flower…
Give the nectar all bees lust
Little flower, oh so timid.
Man go wild at your image
Little flower, not so tall
Little flower, from stem falls.
Not so beautiful, any longer
Little flower- served its use.

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
