The Gift – a Poem

primrose, flower,yellow,hand,gift

A poem inspired by one of the many tokens I find dehydrated and forgotten in my pockets.

The proffered bloom

The outstretched arm

The beaming smile

The innocent charm

The practiced thanks

The warm embrace

The small armed squeeze

The happiest face

The turn and skip

The stark concern

The careful pocket

The sure return

The continued day

The thoughts adrift

The abrupt recall

The crumpled gift

  2. Love this poem! I used to receive many such gifts from the lawn mostly such as the first yellow dandelions which I carefully put in a small vase with water. Such sweet smiles filled with love.

  6. Such gifts are the absolute best, even when they are dandelions and small fingers are covered in a sticky mess.
