My Amaryllis

Wrote this for the contest but was to late as usual, guess the jokes on me.

My Amaryllis

Brings off a beautiful scent as if your could initially sing
Calming effect for one and all to view and fully able to see

Often I pick some to make a special floral ensemble

Welcoming this Shepherdess Goddess while I'm so close and near
Xavier will be coming over and be my loving partner so quiet dear
Yearly I pot and plant my favorite plant this lively Amaryllis
Zestily, I drink and water it with care for she is my queen plant I really
