Upon A Bed Of Petals

There in a bed of petals rests
The latest blooms burst from their nests

Beneath the trees in even's shade
Those nodding flowers dipped and swayed

And one more tender petal fell
The coloured bed of scents to swell

I'll rest me in this quiet shade
'Till sunset's glow does quickly fade

And rest me in these petals sweet
No kingly throne made greater seat

From thence the view I shall survey
The setting sun, the flowers gay

And if, perhaps, I then should tire
I'd follow this, my heart's desire

And there upon that petalled bed
I'd rest my weary, happy head

Perfumed by fragrance from the ground
To go where pleasant dreams abound

Written for the contest by the same name. First Place.

    What a coincidence..i wrote a haiku about a petal earlier..but mine describes thristiness whilst your poem describes beauty..I love this verse-And one more tender petal fell/the coloured bed of scents to swell..so soft so sweet this verse..almost describing more than a peta..I ll.ove your poem..and going to my favs : )
