Ambiguously hiding words

Ambiguously, yes I have
and without compunction
intentionally did hide words
a small sum of souls who would find
difficulty deciphering their milieu
I did hide even the flowers
bursting forth before mine eyes each Spring, 
the Spring flowers finding the glow
in mine wanting eyes
and eager to please mine globes

And with ease, I did

to the ogling observers
wanting nothing less than to
tear the radiant petals from their lush form... 
I did cause winters scorn

    Dearest James, If some "ogling observers" would ruin the flowers petals, it is best to keep them hidden. I see more than one meaning in this extraordinary poem. If you ever care to write, I have the same email address. Love to you and Noah, Carolyn

    I enjoyed your imagery in this poem, James. Gosh, you just suddenly appear out of nowhere. What are you doing to stay so busy these days?
