Flowers. - Poem by David Boyce


Black rose for sorrow,
White rose for love,
Yellow rose for an anniversary,
Connected to loved ones above.

Red rose for eternal love,
For whom you have heartache,
Lily for those just lost or recently departed,
Whom god had to take.

Carnations for Weddings,
Many colours will be applied,
Imprinted into their memories,
Before the day they died.

There may be lots of flowers,
Which they once used to send,
Or the mention of other types,
Received at the bitter end.

To many people it’s a message from spirit,
In that wanton hour,
But those without strong spiritual beliefs,
It is simply just a flower.
