Poet's Notes about The Poem

There is a Christian legend that when Jesus was carrying the cross, wherever Mary's tears fell to the ground Carnations started to grow.

    A wonderous poem Valerie...could you be a wee bit sick of winter.
    I am and your poem gives me hope that the dummer's heat will return someday.

    Carnations flourish through the years
    Bursting forth from Mary's tears,

    What beautiful lines! I haven't heard about such a legend! Altogether this poem is a marvel!
