I Picked You


Not those flowers

Beneath the sign that says no smoking
The illegal female stands,
A regal blend of grim and joking,
A garden in her hands:
One rose hints her passion,
Two tulips kiss compassion,
Three carnations show her joy,
Four lilies leave her coy,
Five daises brush her cheek–
Sixteen flowers make me weak.

    Lovely. I can see the damsel smoking and holding her flowers.

      Thanks! I had pictured her as a smoking damsel rather than a damsel smoking, but I failed to convey that distinction, haha. Either way, I’m glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
