A Gift of Flowers


Charlotte Rose

Wild Flowers

I want to give you flowers,

not in baskets and bouquets,

not cut and dried in vases,

not wrapped in green wax papers

or pinned into corsage;

I want to give you flowers,

a hillside full of flowers

where all our someday babies

can run and laugh and play

among the wild flowers

I give to you today.

from Love Poems
