Adoring Lines to the Flower of Brazil
and post notes and photos about your poem like Ngoc Nguyen.
In tribute to my beautiful and brilliant bestie and mentee, Rose Benedicte Gregoire.
I love a lovely girl—a Flower
from the sun-baked land of Brazil;
ageless, she by clock's every hour
makes the time be perfectly still.
Though fair and gorgeously pretty,
she longs to be known and adored
for her heart and inward beauty,
where love is felt and richly stored.
She's queenly and wears a lush crown,
a regent who sits on her throne;
a Rose, she's praised and of renown,
and prized for her rare grace alone.
Too selfless and giving and kind
to disappoint, she lives to care;
and gives alms to the lame and blind,
and for me always says a prayer.
