Bloom and Smile

Does the daisy apologize to the rose
Because she is white and not red?
Does the holly-hock wish it were very small
And delicate lobelia instead?
I’ve never heard the butter-cup sigh
Because it’s been sown in the wild
Is it not the same then for you and I?
We should bloom where we’re planted and smile



  1. Enjoyed. So much time is wasted wishing we were what we are not.

  2. Anthony, I agree. Perhaps this was written to remind myself of that truth:)?


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
