tulips and tiger lilies

dew drops lie like
denizens of the distant dawn
on plush green grass that
grows between rows of
tulips and tiger lilies
if only to be trimmed every
Tuesday afternoon by
a gregarious gardener who
upon further thought will see
that flowers and weeds both
start out as seeds and that
the only reason why we
let geraniums grow and
groom the grass is due to
our fundamental fascination
for colourful things.
