flower poem # 2

 flower poem # 2

tulip bulbs have come
it’s soon time to plant them
heard a story once about a
person horticulturally challenged
planted her bulbs upside down
the tulips finally came up in july
their stems all sinewy evidence
of their frantic effort I was always
as a child given a tulip on my
early may birthday one year I
think I was three I picked all the
blooms in my grama’s garden
