Chrysanthemums

              Chrysanthemums

The mums grow green all summer long,
Leaf after leaf they grow
Throughout the spring and summer's song
When flowers come and go.

They complement the annuals
That bloom and fade away,
Short-lived the ringing of their bells
To August from first May.

I've had my growing seasons too,
My song fades in cool air,
In longer days of heat I grew
Impatient for my flair.

Now days are short, the air is cold,
And Autumn's in its prime
To show the orange, red, and gold
Of mums that took their time.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
