Poem of the Week - 'Flowers and the People' by Jack Stanley

Posted on April 26, 2016 by Yen-Yen Lu | 0 comments

Flowers and the People

Flowers are nicer than people
They come in pretty colours and
smell much better

They hardly eat at all
(Water will do, thank you)

Get them in a bunch, they won't get noisy
Bring them in the house, they won't impose

They don't complain, or argue, or fight

They're much sweeter - 
Just ask the bees

 

 

Using straightfoward, witty language, Stanley has composed a solid case for flowers and with spring in the air, this vibrant poem seems fitting this week. The one downside to beautiful flowers brightening up the day: hayfever.
