Vase on a Stand


Oh, flowers, smelling like nothing else

Your colors shining in the sun

Sitting on the ground and grass

and swishing in the trees

Your petals blowing everywhere

So very beautiful

Red or green or yellow

and all the other colors

Oh, flowers,

I’m happy to be seeing you every day
