i love this flower,
the little girl said
as she plucked the red bloom
from its green stem.

i think it’s just so pretty,
she continued happily,
holding up the little red flower
for everyone to see

before tossing it to the ground,
and skipping happily away
it’s beauty suddenly forgotten,
never meant to stay.

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
