Sensuous Sweet William,

swaying slowly and with ease,

sickly scent suffuses,

cloying at the breeze.


Floral, fragrant, Freesias,

a heady, heavenly perfume,

flimsy, fickle, finicky,

punctuates juvenile June.


Lilly or the Valley,

valiant, staunch, verbose,

remembrance and reminisce,

of fallen family close.


Romantic, rotund, Roses,

their drama does delight,

pervading, perfumes profligate,

part, prophetic poetsโ€™ heart.
