SOVEREIGN OF THE BLOOMS
 

married to the mid-summer blaze, her aroma

reigns

beneath blue

skies subtly sweetening

the air

 

 

moisture feeds every weft of her

fabric; thus

bearing the gift of

longevity

upon the

‘Sovereign of Blooms’

 

to touch-is to stroke-the finest velvet.

though she shall not be subjected to

undue pressure; for

the very presence of her

thorns

protects her rights

 

charmingly poised alongside royal dynasty,

she boasts exquisite attire and vivid colour; captivating

eyes,

summoning the

emotions,

of her every subject

 

a treasured figure of our

heritage.

established for every

romantic; dutifully serves

for final goodbyes.

 

          -         All Hail The Queen of The Garden
