In a flower shop

need a bunch of flowers,
For the best flower in the world.
So I find myself in this flower shop,
On a sunny day,giving a short stop.

Multicolored flowers are everywhere.
All shine the brightest, smell the best.
hard to decide which one to buy.
It is such a hard test.

Should I buy this purple one?
What a lovely name it has.
It is called erica.
Or should I but that one?
They call it morning-glory.
This is so miraculous,so delicate!
As it wraps its arm to another,
How proud it is to be the best of art.
They are all purple,yellow and red,
Giving a comfort to the heart.

How about that one?
The florist says it is an ice plant’.
Contrary to its name,it awakens my soul.
I am sure it is as beautiful as that nemesia.
Would it be a good choice if I buy that edelwise?
It gives visual appeal to the eyes.
It is as white as the snow.
As pure as your feelings.

I guess you will like it most.
So hard to choose a flower for you.
How beautiful these flowers, full of fire
Full of desire.
I need a bunch of flowers.
For the best flower in the world.
