The Flower Girl

The flower girl carefully placed the yellow rose petals

Covering the floor before her each step down the aisle

Now satisfied and smiling, she looked like an angel

There standing awaiting the bride

The yellow rose carpet was perfect and perfumed

She had performed her job with great pride

The bridal march rang, her little heart raced

Now here she was coming her way

Each step was placed onto petals she'd lain

The long beautiful train laying there on the floor

Carried the lovely yellow petals away

Capturing them as though they were keeping them all

For just this one special stroll, to adore

The flower girl smiled and dreamed a dream

They would re-appear on her wedding day

    This is a wonderful portrait you have painted with the yellow petals. I hope you enter it into the contest, I think it would do very well.

    Thanks Richard...I wrote it with the contest in mind but then discovered no free verse allowed! So I changed the title and it's now just a poem.....glad you liked it.

    This is such a sweet write, I wonder if a flower girls actually think things like this? Were you a flower girl Donna? If so, did you dream as this girl in your poem did? I can picture this little dreamer thinking of her own wedding someday! You have written a magnificent and wondrous poem this evening! What a delightful piece, Great Work!!
