It Is Said

More by this author
It is said that a flower, in its final hour,
so close to repose, twists bitter and sour.

It is said that a man in his darkest day, will take a knee and learn how to pray.

It is said that man, if put in a cage,
can learn to love and calm his rage.

It is said that man can write words, rythym and rhyme,
and still man is no more than a puppet of time.

Ah, yet another poem of flowers and man. I read a Walter de la Mare poem like this called "All That's Past" It's very much like yours, though a little more complex and with more vocab. 'We wake and whisper awhile,/ But the day gone by,/ Silence and sleep like fields/ Of amaranth lie.'
Impressive. It could still be a lot better, but impressive nonetheless now.
