Friendship's Bouquet
~*Marge Tindal*~

Springing from the vine
a bloom of beauty comes to call
Sleepyhead of Morning Glory
unwrapping blossoms gently to all

Fresh the buds of spring
upon the arbor entwined
Sweet, sweet charm of Jasmine
is quite simply divine

Fragrantly unequalled
Snowy white of Gardenia
So special is your flowering
like a blushing ballerina

Magnolia blooms the size of saucers
Lemony fresh the scent of spring
Breezes blowing deliciously mixing
fragrance fit for butterfly wings

Not to be outdone
Periwinkle peeks over the windowsill
Joining the very beauty
of the graceful Jonquil

A stroll through the garden
would not be complete
without the blooming of the Rose
her petals wafting sweet

This bouquet of fragrance
I present to you
A token of the beauty
that in friendship's garden grew

For so like the flowers
the tending of friendship rare
Requires only the nurturing
from friends who really care

OOOOOHHHHH Marge-She is going to love this to no end.....It is so beautiful in presentation and in thought.  Just when I thought you couldn't possibly get any better.....zap...you done it again.  This I am sure she will find more lovely than any bouquet in her shop.

Miss Marge, Martie will surely be moved by this sweetened gifting. This is as nice as she is!

Marge--You make a boquet like no other...so sweet and with so many different flowers...but the best flower is you!  Thank you sweet lady for your friendship garden.

I am so, smiling now, happy that you wrote a poem thinking of me!!

Marge,
I love how you use the colors for each flower.
What a vivid imagination you have!
Reading the words I can smell the flowers...

This post just doesn't like me and doesn't recognize me !
I've tried 15 times to post thanks and keep getting tossed out !
so I've asked Mark to post this for me ..... I do thank you all.
G r r r r r ! And if you reply after this .... please know that I appreciate your thoughts. (And I thought Ceres and I were friends.)  

Doreen~
Here's *wink*ing back !

MarkB~
She's a wonderful inspiration for poetic thoughts.
Even nicer is the friendship she gives
in bouquets of her verse.
Thank you.

Claire~
Thanks, my friend.

Martie~
''Tis the least I can do for one who delivers
such sweet bouquets to others.  

Eloise~
I gladly share the bouquet of friendship with you, my friend.

MarkB~
Well, thank you, Mr. Green Jeans !

Hoot~
So pleased that you enjoyed my F.T.D. bouquet.

Marge, So beautiful and fragrant a poem for one who deserves a fresh bouquet every day, as a symbol of her warmth and her friendship and as a tribute to her talents. I throw my bouquet onto the stage for both Marge and Martie, two wonderful friends and poets
