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

Hoot~
This is just precious.
How like the flowers you are.
Always a bouquet of beauty.
Love you .. ~*Marge*~

I love the use of flowers to suggest the different aspects of your personality..their fragility and beauty and strength.

And the violet...crushed but unstoppable was a great one to finish on

I am the Marigold
If I invade your garden
I'm only there for a year
But I keep the bugs away

sorry couldn't resist

Ruth, The one thing about flowers is they make us smile in the sunshine, but you make us smile all the time. Love this poem.

That is fantastic! I never knew a flower could have so many meanings. Very artistic and a beautiful poem.

Hoot-owl-rn,
    This is beautiful, very understated but very moving, and very well constructed. By the way, I found some of the links to submit some of my sonnets to, but are there e-mial addresses anywhere? Forgive me if I seem a tad obtuse but I am barely computer literate. If you could help me with some advice I would appreciate it. Thanks for a sweet poem, I really enjoy your writing.
