I must as flowers please your eyes

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."


"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world."
      --Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844




I must as flowers please your eyes
When all the gloom a day has brought
The colors speak of lullabies
And fragrance sparks a lovely thought

When all the gloom a day has brought
I have a flower within me
A flower you alone could see
And grows where it was meant to be

With all the nurturing obtained
A flower I will be no more
For I will stick right through your heart
And dwells in there forevermore
