These Tulips are a dazzle
Of tethered sunshine,
Silky lemon petals trembling
In the slow moving air.

Courteous flowers,
Bowing to each other,
Bending low to the waiting room
Their stems gently curving,
Lifting the green and lovely leaves
That we might see
The fabulous hidden life
Waiting for us all.

  2. Thank you so much for your good wishes, Samreen. So glad you liked the poem and loves yours.#
    If only we were more caring of each other, what a different place the world would be! Hope you are keeping safe and well.
