tulips

tulips are not my favorite flower,
nor roses so feminine i'm told,
nor iris nor lilac nor poppy.
the sunflower holds no special fascination.
so much for lupin,
rhododendron skulking away,
polished chrysanthemum crystalline
but so... boring. like daisy.
violet? no.
bird of paradise, you are ill named;
what kind of moniker is daffodil, anyway?
orchids
that's what you guessed
but wrongly. lily, lily,
lily.
