   Come and see the rhododendrons

In the Garden of Apathy

My little Petunia

The chrysanthemums are at their peak.

They're so risqu"

And so unique!


If you willy,

But mind the rose

You hosey nose

Can you hear the Orchestra?

Why, the Orchestra of Orchids, of course

They're playing a Waltz

A Waltz for the Wallaby

Who sits so vile

With the vespertine violets.

Ah, the aloe

All alone

Allows the ardent arnica to articulate her aroma.

Have you had enough, Peach Blossom?

Oh! Wait till you see the lugubrious lupine

And the lush lilly

Singing their Lucrative Lullaby

In the rotunda

Near the gazebo.

Gushing gardenia hail the happy hyacinth

While Darling Dianthus dwell near the gate.

Our visit is over, my Four-Leafed Clover.

I bid thee farewells

With tulips and bells!

I love the alliteration here, andthe way you write is so....melodic, harmonious, really, it just flows into my ear the same way a violin would. The flower descriptions, I feel are simply beautiful, and I love the pieces on the Waltz and the Orchestra for Orchids! (did you know that if they're taken care of, then they are immortal?)
