flowerpoem #3

 flowerpoem #3

the u.s. poet laureate
said he liked the word
daffodil then recited a
poem with that flower
within plus a lot of words
unrelated he must have
also liked those well I
like hollyhocks – the
word and the flower
but where have all
the hollyhocks gone
oh favorite blossom
of my childhood the
dolly gowns we made
the bumble bees we
trapped inside freed
them anon but now you
never see that lovely
stalk of blooms oh where
have hollyhocks gone
