The flower of love

by cricketjeff on May 11, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Roses and lilies so pretty and white
A gift that I chose for my lover
Displayed in a vase that she keeps by the bed
While she is displayed on the cover

The flowers are virginal pure as the snow
My love though is filled with desire
The beauty displayed by the blooms and her form
Seem quite certain to set me afire

I’ll pluck my fair lily, the rose of my heart
And place her alongside my bed
For though I can’t touch her I know she is mine
The flower I grew in my head
