POEM
TITLE: LARKSPUR
VERSE 1
Oh, how I admire the flower larkspur
Anytime I sit on the greeny meadows in despair !
Larkspur, a beautiful, lovely fragrant flower thou art with other flowers I compare.
Moments unforgettable in bloomsberry ,larkspur!

VERSE 2
Jasmine, daisy and lily of the valley , the flowers that care
Larkspur, a flower so dear and rare
Admired at the sight of bloom, but forgotten soon at noon, blur
Oh, how I long to smell the sweet fragrance of larkspur in the time I spare

VERSE 3
Of all natures beautiful flowers is larkspur
The symbol of love, binding couples so dear
The uniqueness of larkspur I cannot compare
So clearly depicting the true nature of love I declare , sincere

VERSE 4
The bride’s bouquet hailed kissed and preferred but at noon , marred
Symbolizing the truth of love, I pondered, larkspur
Love, so adulterated and err
Fleeting love, takes wings, stirred, like a butterfly on larkspur

VERSE 5
Gear towards love hidden truth , clear
Everything in larkspur has a lesson to spare , stare!
Attractive, adorable, wonderful, sweet scented flower ,larkspur
Gorgeously adorned on the bride’s hair; in fair to glare

VERSE 6
Rose flower and larkspur , a perfect pair!
Unrequitted love, so impaired and blur
Stained by man’s feeble love affair, bizarre.
Larkspur, not a flower mere ; to the brokenhearted ,repair!

VERSE 7

The brokenhearted nightmare , larkspur!
Flaring mixed moments of happiness of the lover’s vows , glare
Drawing sad tears to the eyes ,where vows are broken, there!
Stare at the wedding pictures in eyes blur , here…

VERSE 8

The shining diamond ring and the beautiful bridal bouquet ; larkspur ,tears incur
Now, fleeting love mystery and vanity bare
True perfect love non - existent ; rare , but where ?
Sphere of adulterated love revolves around me, as I stare at this larkspur, now aware!
