SOVEREIGN OF THE BLOOMS
married to the mid-summer blaze, her aroma
skies subtly sweetening
moisture feeds every weft of her
bearing the gift of
‘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
protects her rights
charmingly poised alongside royal dynasty,
she boasts exquisite attire and vivid colour; captivating
of her every subject
a treasured figure of our
established for every
romantic; dutifully serves
for final goodbyes.
- All Hail The Queen of The Garden
