We danced together in that light warm room,
With the summer-flowered wallpaper blooms.
Laughing, smiling, and twirling with the daisies,
Not thinking at all about the maybes.
Like Black-Eyed Susies, our eyes would meet,
And that’s when you would sweep me off my feet.
Your eyes were as bright as the sunflowers –
Soft but warmer with every hour.
But, as winter kills all summer flowers bright,
Our love was next for winter to smite.
Never again – together – will be dance in that room,
With all the summer-flowered wallpaper blooms,
Because winter came – a cold cloaked caper –
And darkened that summer-flowered wallpaper.

This is awesome alana, the imagery completely comes out. And comparing flowers to moods only increases the flow of the poem. Nice job.

Wow Alana! The imagery and comparisons you used are fantastic! I loooooove this a lot - it paints such a beautiful picture in my mind of two people dancing and twirling in love, in sync with flowers on the wall that are swaying too somehow. AMAZING!!!!
