Bliss Beauty Flowers In Settings Wild - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
if I were a master florist
seeking out a bloom perfect
flowers with flawed bent
heads would get a peep not
swift into dustbin discarded
go not one customer wept
alas not a single soul to shed
tears for flowers to early tomb sent
but unless your florists
a flower with a bend
stem that hangs its head
which still looks beautiful smells
like sweet perfume is still a precious
rare joy to behold in wild settings
