The Power Of Flowers

A is for Aster dancing in the wind
B is for Begonia as many as you can find

C is for Cornflower adorning a maiden’s hair
D is for Dandelion waving in the air

E is for English Daisy shining silver along the brook
F is for Fairy Wings kept in granny’s book

G is for Geranium in our pretty garden
H is for Hollyhock atop the Afghan’s turban

I is for Impatiens a carpet beneath the tree
J is for Jewelweed visited by the bee

K is for Kalimeris white as the snow
L is for Lily that in the church glow

M is for Marigold all over the hills
N is for Naranjilla without any frills

O is for Orchids that the pretty lady got
P is for Pansy drawn on the riverside yacht

Q is for Quail bush bright in the summer sun
R is for red rose in the senora’s bun

S is for Sunflower thousands in the field
T is for Tailflower out of its shield

U is for Uncarina deep in Madagascar
V is for Verbascum shaped like a star

W is for Wisteria soft as satin dress
X is for Xyris which grows without a fuss

Y is for yew fresh as spring dew
Z is for Zinnia that once in the yard grew

These flashes of colours in our everyday life
Gives meaning to that endless strife
