A "zinke" is an early wind instrument that dates from the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods. Popular from 1500 to 1650. The flower above is a "Cyclamen"

Painted pictures...of unicorns
And painted pictures...of bushes with thorns 
Flowers grow...on my window sills 
Roses, tulips...and daffodils 
Garden rows...of buttercup 
Flower pots...all filled up 
Cherries red...in dark green leaves 
Carnations sewn...on pocket sleeves 
Cyclamen with white trim...pink
Painted on my...wood neck zinke 
Soft flowing music...of violins
Smiling faces...creating grins 
Writing poems...in my spare time 
Writing lyrics...rhyme a rhyme 
My hobbies that...I like to do 
These lovely things...hold my heart true

What a gem, Charles! It's nice to know that you enjoy growing flowers and playing your fiddle. I can just imagine how well it's adorned with paintings of the cyclamen. Of the "hobbies" poems I've read, this is the best. Winning wishes for the contest, Charlie! Hugs, Carolyn
