Pretty Flower (Children)


I found a pretty flower,
food for bees and butterflies.
But when I gave it to my mom,
it put tears in Mommy's eyes.

Why are mommies like that?
Pretty things can make them cry
just like a very sad thing.
Some day, will I know why?

She said as we get older,
things don't all make sense...
but tears from pretty flowers
are most welcomed precious guests.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
