Fleur D’espoir (Flower of Hope)

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)

The deep blue spiderwort – she does not know
An epidemic now has been declared
And all the world beyond her cobalt glow
Has found itself panicked and unprepared
The sunbright spiderwort – upon the lawn
Reposes in her leafy springtime berth
Delighting in the sweet birds’ carillon
Smiling at Heaven, but close to the earth
The joyful spiderwort – careless of fear
Gives us hope, as always, in her new year
