Gentle Flower ( A Nonnett)

Gentle  flower why do you weep

Why  do you droop and seem so weak

Too strong  the sun’s rays burn you

I shall  shade you with love

Ask for rain to fall

Mosten  your soil

End your thirst

New life

    Thank you Willow, this is a beautiful interpretation of this picture, if not intuitive. Very encouraging too. 🙂
