The Meeting of the Flowers--By David Fox--United States

The Meeting of the Flowers

The flowers all sat in a row
With daffodil's face all aglow
Rose spoke first saying, "Now that it's spring
We should savor the sunshine it brings"
Weeping willow started to cry
Knowing someday her friends would die
But cheerful daisy said with a grin,
"Not to worry, come spring we will sprout again."
Bluebell ended the meeting with a chime
Thus ending the meeting, and with it, this rhyme.

David Fox’s writing has appeared in over 100 venues, including newsletters, blogs, print journals and websites. He has been published in the U.K., Canada, India, Finland and the U.A.E.  He edits a print journal, The Poet's Art, (see his ad in the Whispers Ad column).

  4. I would not be surprised if the poem enters one of the school textbooks :) Loved it! :) Kids would love to memorize and sing this!

  5. Niranjan,
    Thanks for the high praises. But if it makes the textbooks, I'd better get a royalty check...LOL
