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!

Augustus Quaicoe

This poem is about unrequited love

Imagining smelling the fragrance of a beautiful pleasant looking flower,
You enjoy the moment with it for some time.
Soon afterwards, when you stroll along the path...
. You forget the awesome moment you have with it moments ago, and drop it in the trash can

The poem illustrates man's feeble love which seems pleasant, enticing, and caring but soon ends in betrayal, heart break, infedility, abandonment, separation and hatred.

The poem uses the lesson of the flower larkspur and nature to lament and explain unrequited love
