My Bougainvillea

Let it crawl and grow
Things that nature sow
Bright red and blue
Just might be right for you

My Bougainvillea petals blossoming lovely red
Its crawling veins clutching the neighbor's wall without being said
The flowery petal didn’t seem to be in pain
Even though cold winter morning sunlight nothing much to gain
How could I have allowed my flowery plant on my neighbors wall to grow
Well I just hoped Mrs. Basket might just enjoy the sprouting flower show

Let it crawl and grow
Things that nature sow
Bright red and blue
Just might be right for you

But alas my bougainvillea I was terrible wrong
With my views had grown to strong
Said Mrs. Basket-Hello bougainvillea you sure are lovely bright red and blue
But I really am sorry this wall is just not for you
Without a wall for my bougainvillea to grow and lean on too
Her beautiful red petals shrank like a once majestic lion, now caged in a zoo
So I have made up my mind to go over to Mrs Baskets one fine day
And plead to allow the bougainvillea to grow over her wall this summer month of May
So I hope to say to Mrs Basket

Let it crawl and grow
Things that nature sow
Bright red and blue
Just might be right for you

    I had the same problem with a neighbor and my honeysuckle vine and the fence is mine.Some people just like to make trouble! ! ! ! ! ! Enjoy Nature and don't let the other person ruin it for you.You have your side of the fence....a ten from me and a very good lesson about sharing the space on this planet with our neighbors and Nature's artistry....
