Perennial Love

from by Rivers



seeded in may on the side of a road / the natal day i felt my heart bode / looming love needing sun and rain / it was birth of a floral love / the stem was cut before june / before the solstice came / three months without bloom / to return in autumn’s name / in winter’s grip a flower may die / november we must say goodbye / but with sun’s love annuals come anon / perennial love is never gone / and with each dawn’s rising sun / chloro-love-phylls me anon / cyclical birth blossoms / my pollen’s sewed and life goes on / each year another node / again the flower burgeons / growing to be old / in spring perennial love comes
