|Flowers for MotherThese velvet roses, fringed with Queen Anne's Lace,|
Do they recall my first bouquet to you?
That ragged bunch of wilted dandelions
You treasured and arranged in your best vase?
|The broken stems, the accidental weeds|
I brought when I was small, received the care
Of lavish blooms in later years. It's true:
A mother's love is all a flower needs.
