You are a delicate little flower
Slowly you blossom, your petals unfold
You cannot withstand the weather's power
The first winter's breath will leave you so cold

Your petals would whither yellow to gold
Alone and vulnerable...left to die
Beauty and splendor no more to behold
A victim of season, deaf to your cry

That is how nature will kiss you goodbye
Her ice-laden lips will leave you to freeze
Beneath a forbidding and snowfilled sky
Where only your stem survives the next breeze

Yet, I have heard as you've silently cried
So come with me now, I'll take you inside

I'm very glad I read this... I do like the twist you've put on the Spenserian sonnet format, the anapestic  meter variation made it flow very gracefully.

Terrific work, I love when people bring innovation into tradition with such lovely results.
