monday melody

five or six pansies did sing
and this was their song to me:

We live for the sun
and to give joy to the eye.
Our worries are few
and tho' our life be brief
with a little help from you
we can make this gravel path shine.

We were meant for a lovely garden bed
full of dark loamy soil
but somehow ended up here instead
where we stand proud as lions,
roaring the delicacy of creation.

Beautiful interpretation... If flowers could speak, what would they say?
Thanks for making my day!
