! A Flower Is A Flower ! - Poem by Linda Ori

I did not bring you roses
When you searched for something rare,
Instead I brought you daisies
And I hoped you wouldn't care;

And now I look behind me
With a wistful little smile -
You would have taken dandelions
And loved me all the while.

    I don't see it as a love poem, I see it as an ode to human modesty, when it is found (Report) Reply

    This is so sweet. I have written a love poem about daisies. I must find it and put it on. I have a friend who just loves natural flowers, a bunch, and not a contrived arrangement, and I am like that too. Such beautiful work. Karin Anderson

    Sometimes, succinctness, and simplicity, are so compendious & smacking of mellifluousity....This is an example of that statement! Rock-On, Midnight...You are most definitely, in a most auspicious groove, lassie!

    I wrote a poem called, 'The Little Things' it says pretty much what you so eloquently said in your poem Linda. Best, Just another Linda (Report) Reply

    flower has magical touch
    it gives you a sudden rush
    and let out a silent sigh
    coupled with smiling eyes

    hmmm... lovely poem
