Tulips - Poem by Bill Darrah
What a bright combination
Of reds, yellows, purples, and blues.
It is true
They ought to be sold in twos.
How remarkable and beautiful these flowers
Are to nature and to man.
They bloom so freely with the April showers.
Tulips surely show they can
Possess beauty, romance, and healing powers
In a relationship between woman and man.
Twolips interlocked in a kiss
Show the Tulips,
Like everything else in life,
Offer various clues and tips,
Something no one should want to miss,
Of how Tulips were named after Twolips
Engaged in a kiss.
One set of lips,
Like the Tulips,
Is wearing the red, yellow, purple, or blue
Lipstick color someone special bought for you.
These lips are moist and full of color
Impatiently waiting for the other
Set of lips
To quiet down in his chattering
Of clues and tips
Enough for Twolips,
Anxious and intrigued by the attractiveness of the other
To touch and caress each other
In a l i n g e r i n g, yet passionate kiss,
Something no one should want to miss!
