Love's Flower



When in love, you flew.
You worry not,
Nor do you toil,
But spin, you do,
And being pollinated:
Clothed in royal splendor
And colorful hue,
You are at ease,
Even if your hard to please.

You were glad.
The season’s change,
Now your sad.
You are delicate
And now in winter.
Your petals wilt
And fly in the wind.
Your color is red
Since you have bled.
You were a flower,
Come has your hour.

You are a branch,
Jesus is the vine
From which you flower.
God will prune…
Until fruit you bear,
And soon your robe will be
White as the Moon.
Season’s regain,
You’re in love again.
Twice you bloom,
Once on Earth,
Once in Heaven,
Even from doom.
