The Virtue of a Flower ( Wsibopea )

The Virtue of a Flower

Girl, honey
the innocent flower
offers her nectar
and perfume, but
let virtue wait a day
until tomorrow ’cause

neither a philosophy nor a plan
is launched by woman or man
on a trampoline of joy, and

cannon balls don’t bounce
anymore than flowers can be
thrown with catapults.

— Douglas Gilbert
