Poems by The Muse

For Mother’s Day, The Muse wrote me a collection of flower poems. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. These are all original works of hers with no editing on my part. (It’s hard to turn that internal editor off, but for her mere 10 years of age, I think these are great just as they are.) I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. 🙂

WATER LILIES

The water lily
Floating,
Boating,
Across the water.

The water lily
White,
Just might 
Be my favorite.

The water lily
Spinning,
Winning
The race of the flowers.


THE MOONFLOWER

The Moonflower grows
As the west wind blows
As crickets chirp all
Through the night.
And then time passes
Along with the grasses
Until the dawn’s
Gray light.

Then in the morn
Through prickle and thorn
The Moonflower
Grows so sweet,
And then I wake
To garden rake
To the Moonflower
In nightclothes
And bare feet.

I walk through dirt
Thorns do not hurt
My feet
At all today,
For spring almost here
So very near, 
For the Moonflower
Is finally here.


CHRYSANTHEMUMS

Chrysanthemums,
November,
Orange,
Yellow,
Pink.

Chrysanthemums,
Autumn,
Cold,
Grow,
Think.
