THE WILD FLOWER


THE WILD FLOWER

I am a wild flower blooming by the
wayside,
Wafting my exotic fragrance by the
hour,
For I live by moments, and besides,
I love to dance and swing,
In the gentle breeze which the summer
brings!
I enjoy my life, though unnoticed and
uncared,
Yet I am fit to adorn the crown of a
king!
Since we all fade out, cradled in time's
lap,
But as long I bloom, I am a queen!

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
