Who can but look at brightly coloured flowers,
without feeling there must be higher powers,
that placed them here for a week or but an hour,
to cause a smile and make our lives much less sour.
Thought they slowly fade and drop from bright green stems,
their varied hues and colours create such gems,
dour moods are swept away from our minds to cleanse,
and help us look at life through much brighter lens.
