Last Wish

Across a flowered field, I gaze.
A daisy weeps through morning haze.
One lone petal departs her side -
a "love-me-not" is softly sighed.

Gazing away from love denied -
one more leaflet from thee is pried.
Another dream towards fate's romance;
a petal plucked lends second chance.

The daisy's hearth has met defeat.
Her children sob beneath her feet.
Deflowered by a lover's act -
one last petal remains in tact.

"Love-me-not or love me so true?"
I leave that answer up to you.

    I love Sonnets, and I love this. It is perfect, just as it is. Wow, and brilliant. I love the way it ends. Almost in a way that you have to go and reread it. Outstanding. Love and happy holidays to you, and thanks for your comment on my blog. Christie
