A Flower’s Life
Flowers seeds are planted in the middle of spring,
Waiting to bloom while the birds start to sing.
Day and night the time begins to pass,
Suddenly the first leave grows at last.
The caretaker walks out and admires his plants,
He walks past the sunflowers and his eggplants.
He takes his hose and waters them all,
He trips over his hose and begins to fall.
An ambulance comes and the man has to leave,
He fell on the roses that cut through his sleeve.
His niece took over his garden for him,
She gave the big bushes a tiny little trim.
Weeks later the older man had returned,
He gave his niece the few dollars she had earned.
The next morning, he was back in the garden,
He stopped his role in falling he had starred in.
A few months went by,
The man looked at the sky.
When he looked down his flowers had grown,
Now he can look at the beauty his flowers had shown.
