Stump attracting me first and more than flowers

Flowers, grass, bushes, trees, attracted me in garden In centre, a tree stump seemed to have complain Stump was sobbing, none was caring Moved by tears, I moved closer to stump Stump bit in solace, narrated nostalgia bit by bit “ Was once gardens fame tree, grew lovers favorite flowers, Lovers plucked flowers, friends wish came true for sure On Valentine day, seeking wish fulfilling flower Lovers thronged, broke stem as they hysterically lunged, Lovers got flowers, their love life flowered A child could not get flower, wept on failure Queried, you are a child, flowers are for lovers Child wept louder said he too was a lover Flower he wanted to present it to his Mother Tears kept trickling , as if stump it was watering Since then, every day child devotedly kept watering Waiting for flower, be first one to pluck fresh flower And present it to his dear Mother " Deeply moved by childs love for stump, I felt ashamed for mad urge of plucking flower Flowers, thereafter, never plucked, left on tree to adore Not wanting to be sinned for depriving any child's present for mother Now all stumps attracting me first and more than flowers ( Entry for Members Contest - I fell in love with a Tree stump by Matt Caliri )

I really like the way you employed personification to give the tree stump a voice. This is quite a lovely write, Hitendra. Best wishes in the contest. Love, Carolyn
