The Flowers Are Alive!

As I walk through my garden,
The flowers are hard to ignore,
The Firecracker Plant booms and snaps,
And the Dandelions roar.

The Bird of Paradise sings a song,
The Pin Cushion jumps uncomfortably,
The Snap Dragon snarls at the Pink Ginger,
And the Rattlesnake Flower shivers clumsily.

The Star Gazer Lilies envy the sky,
And the Sunflowers are bright as the sun,
The Sweet Peas charm Sweet William,
And the Cobra Lilies hiss just for fun.

The dragonflies breathe fire,
The butterflies have toasted wings,
The honeybees drip their stickiness,
And the songbirds really do sing. 

The End
