  1. 1. FlowersCreated by: Emma Southward 1st period: Mrs. Love
  2. 2. Flowers © Rola Barbakh You might think A bunch of plants Are not special In any way. But to me Flowers are beautiful They calm me down Like my best friend. Their scent is so nice It makes me feel so happy Some flowers have a strong smell I think I will faint! When I am sad The flowers are my help They might just sit there But they speak a million words. Of comfort and happiness A flower feels like a friend It listens to me And makes me feel loved!

  4. 4. The Little Flower By: Beverly Crespo In the same garden, side by side, two flowers began to bloom, One, small and fragile, knew her life would be over soon. The other, a boisterous rose, felt far superior to her friend For she knew that she would live to see the stars and moon Straight through to summer's end. The little flower did not have the heart to tell her That longevity can bring pain, For who would be there to protect her from the elements, The blistering sun and numbing rain. Or perhaps an overzealous lad would clasp her in his grip And pluck her petals one by one just for the fun of it. And as the rose rambled on and on about all the delights she'd see The little flower closed her eyes to dream contentedly.

  6. 6. When Flowers Wake Each Morning By:Kenn Nesbitt When flowers wake each morning they don't have to make their beds. And lettuce leaves aren't told to comb the hair upon their heads. You'd never tell asparagus it shouldn't play with spears. You'd never ask a stalk of corn to wash behind its ears. A mushroom doesn't have to clean its room, and you'll agree a tree won't have to study hard to learn geometry. I guess it should be obvious from listening to my rant. I'm tired of being a person; I would rather be a plant.

My body blooms with each infusion, of your intoxicating scent. Your beauty originates, from the most sacred place. If my heart looked in a mirror, it would resemble your face. They say - a rose in the snow, is impossibly rare. But, I must have you always, Mother Nature I'll dare. If I was an artist, and you were my rose.

Universally supported, by its long mysterious stem. Prior to blooming, we anticipate the gem. It's all a fairy tale, Purple ones are vividly sharp. Expecting an angel, on a unicorn with a harp. Yellow, pink, orange, serene, calm, white. Hearts are lifted, with a mere sight. The beauty of it all, is just like a spell. With a thousand tulip fields, not a single, I'd sell.

  14. 14. But when I realized, Is that this flower that grew, Was not leaves and petals, But pieces of you. Your love and kindness, Your strength and power, Have helped me grow, Into my own little flower. And now with our friendship, I'll never let go, And we can help others, To flower and grow. Friendship Is Like A Flower by Regina Friendship is like a flower, Glowing in its glory, Each and every seed, Telling its own story. As each flower blooms, And then continues to grow, More of its strength and knowledge, Continues to show. And like a garden, It blooms much more fair, When carefully tended, By those who care. Once in a while, You come across a friend, Who is as beautiful as a flower, With a good heart to lend. So I picked this flower, And pulled it apart, And soon all its pieces, Grew into my heart.,

  18. 18. Love is like a flower, beautiful and bold, If this love is not nourished, it can be hard to hold. Love like a flower, grows in the same way, It blossoms and changes with each passing day. Love is the tiny seeds that grows in our heart, Hoping this love is a brand new start. And when this flower shrivels and goes away, If it is cared for it will bloom again someday. If the love we felt seems to die, With patience and hope we will find it again In another`s eye. So when love seems hopeless and you are afraid to try Think about the beautiful flower under a blue sky Love is like a flower, and it will grow to be, A beautiful bouquet of love that will last all eternity.

Just yesterday, it moved me to tears While the children of John were playing their game My peers were trampled to death, what a shame When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged The children were scolded badly by John But when my brothers were ravaged It was noticed, sadly, by none Today, however, I had a reason to smile A nerd, or so he must be Looked at this little purplish flower, a while And took a picture of me Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears I have to die, as yesterday my peers I will do so happily since someone has seen the beauty in me.
