Sweetly Scented

April 17, 2021

Earth’s gift sown in Spring –
Friendship is a sweetly scented
rural sweet pea.

God Make Me Worthy
-Poet Unknown-

It is my joy in life to find
At every turn of the road,
The strong arm of a comrade kind,
To help me with my load.

And since I have no gold to give
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is while I live
“God make me worthy of my friends!”

Friendship is deliciously fragrant-
sharing, exchanging and confessing
– Bearer of joy
like a big, blousy yellow rose,
a ray of golden light

in a merry eye-catching way
oozing pure devotion.
Friendship is a delightful shock
of sheer purple campanula, smiling
gratitude and everlasting like pear blossoms

of April and May-
Happy bloom in a sunflower pot
compact with adoration and loyalty.
Welcoming in their variety
festive and colourful like Mums.

Pretty…also robust like a Gebera Daisy-
Patient, empathetic, humorous-
and respectful as of the petals of a peruvian Lily.
Friendship means desert, valley,
meadow – I am… with you.
