The Beauty Of A Flower


Petals soft, fragrance sweet
unspoiled nature even in heat
even in snow, storms and rain
it stands, enduring all the pain

Endless times lost its mother,
uprooted, lost its feet
though it remains fresh and sweet

Red and pounding beauty
for a few hours, or maybe days
on swift wings the devil prince
is sure to bring it back to earth

But for now the beauty will stand
through unworthy surroundings
and trials of man
A few hours, or maybe days
until the petals give way

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
