Ode to A Delightful Wild Flower Patch


Ode to A Wild Flower Patch


Tiny purple patch
the smallest of wild flower
Tiny violet patch
quaking under the wind's power
Tiny blooming bunch
you rise to greet the day
Tiny cornflower stars of blue
you grace the first of May.

Luscious, precious petal-
Four and a tiny face
Too small to gather in a bunch
The mountain wood your vase.

Tiny violet bloom
Alone up on the hill
Pressed now firmly in my heart
to remember you-I will.

  1. Someone came in a plunked down some big boulders in my condo complex - I was telling someone just Saturday that some little purple flowers would look good growing around them and these were just what I pictured. Lovely.

  2. Lynn~As far as I can tell they only show up high in the mountains in the spring near rocks where it is a little wet. I just adore their sweet little faces and their bright, perky violet color! Hope you find just the right flowers! Do let me know. :-)
