BEAUTIFUL FLOWER(S)


BEAUTIFUL FLOWER(S)

 

We have a magnificent staff

With nary an embodied riff-raff…

      For each will do

      Their own and more too,

With a smile and a cheerful laugh.

‘Tis said of the wonderful Daria,

Our two-times-a-week visual aria…

       She was planting flowers

      For one or more hours,

Another reason this place is “supar-i-ah”!

I heard that our delicate flower

Planted petunias under tree bowers,

      And under windows

      Her blessing thus shows,

Her worth to us tall as a tower.

I hears she wore blue jeans,

Very practical ways and means…

      Only wish I’d been there

      To witness such care,

Oh, the rich palette spread of those scenes!
