MY LITTLE ONE CRIED ALOT TO GET THAT BEAUTIFUL FLOWER
I HESITATED AND TRIED TO CHANGE HIS INTENTION BY SHOWING LEAVES
HE WITH MUCH DELICACY DROPPED MY COMPANY AND WENT AFTER A BUTTERFLY
LIKE A WINNER I CONTINUED MY GARDENING WITH EASE
AFTER SOMETIME HE CAME AND ASKED WHAT IS COMMON TO A FLOWER AND HIS MOTHER
I TAUGHT A LESSON HOW LEAVES CONTRIBUTES TO THE BEAUTY OF FLOWERS
EVERY TIME I CHANGE THE TOPIC AND EXPECTED A TEMPORARY WITHDRAWAL
FINALLY HE CAME AND ASKED WHAT LIES INBETWEEN FLOWERS AND LEAVES
AFTER A MOMENTS FERMENT I LOOKED TO HIS FACE AND UP TO THE BLUE SKY
THERE I REALISED MY FERVORS OF LOVE WITH HIS MOTHER WHICH I DIDN'T WISH TO SHATTER.
