Nasturtium

A
sea
of
green.

Round boats floating still.
Bright white tendrils fan out like spokes.
Spokes on the circular wheel in a mill.
One leaf, the lowest is held down by dew.
A sea of ships without a crew.
Bees buzz merrily over the sea.
Shaded by a tall majestic oak tree.
The sun shines down the light is mellow.
Next to the house whose bricks are yellow.


The author's comments:
This is a poem that I wrote for school in the garden of Emily Dickinson. It was written about a nasturtium flower. And the picture that goes with this article is not of a nasturtium.
