I am a Flower

I am the rose
fragile at times
always whispering of love
and countless nights of passion

I am the lily
who holds her graceful head,
weighted down by morning dew,
high to meet the rising sun

I am the daisy
“he loves me, loves me not”
counted off in rhyme on my petals
the answer ever changing

And I am the violet
easily crushed beneath your feet
but strong enough to survive
to bloom once more

I really like this one...I never thought of comparing myself to flowers...I don't think that I could've done it as wonderfully as you anyways... Beautiful poem...keep up the good work!

There are times when I have felt like the rose, the lily, the daisy, and the violet, although it never occured to me to attatch these feelings to beauties of nature... Thank you for sharing

What beautiful words flow from your tulips! I'm a Leo. Does that make me a dandy lion?

Laughs at your reply Balladeer...no, I would liken you more to a pionsetta...sweet, but of so deadly.

I am the daffodil...the flower of unrequited love. Not the daffy part, ok?

Ruth, this is a lovely poetic bouquet!!

You know, I think that you are an entire bouquet of vibrant wildflowers.  This is a lovely poem.
