Immortelle




IMMORTELLE

The French do have a way with words.
Dried flower? That is for the birds.
But 'immortelle' is pure romance,
A word to make an old heart dance.
It speaks of love pressed between pages,
Meant to last throughout the ages.
It brings to mind a musty scent
Where sweetness lingers, heaven sent.
It makes one think of loving glances
And sweethearts making the most of chances
In shadowy corners and garden bowers.
It speaks of the Language of the Flowers.
'Dried flower?' That cannot cast a spell.
But oh the charm of the Immortelle!

THE FLOWERING

The struggle for existence
Pushing up between unyielding slabs
Graceful, golden and undaunted.

VISIT ME AT
for a great prize.
