Peony Wrongs

PEONY WRONGS 

 

Is it wrong for a peony to bloom,

to bloom with petals red, stamen gold,

is it wrong?

 

Is it wrong for a peony to dream,

to dream of a poet so special, so fair,

is it wrong?

 

Is it wrong for a peony to love,

to love a dainty step, a silken verse,

is it wrong?

 

Is it wrong for a peony to mourn,

to mourn its own perennial passing, unfulfilled,

is it wrong?

    Thanks, Maureen. It was weird, the writing of this one. I had a business letter to prepare but that pesky little peony wouldn’t leave me alone until his poem was done! So glad you like it.
