Fancy Flowers a poem by Jennifer Jo Fay. A poem about the beauty of flowers and the death and rebirth of new growth.

 

Fancy Flowers

Resting in the green oval vase,

were the most beautiful pansies

and centered in the middle was

a gentle pink rose

that whispered of love and sweet beauty.

It was the most delicate thing

and it was lingering

for over a week.

Alas, finally her fancy flower

began to droop

and the life withered out of it.

The day it died

a little bit of life

left the lady

and she felt sorrow hit her

soul

as beauty left her.

Only to return another day.

She had more waiting in her garden.
