Subject(s): Flowers; Hearts; Trees


If there are five white blossoms
On a storm-broken tree,
I will salute beauty
Born in extremity.

The pulses beat with labour
To make the life-stream go
Up through torn branches
Until a flower blow.

I will uncap to courage
Whenever I shall see
A fissured heart that burgeons,
Or a cleft, flowering tree.
