Song of the Flower

I am a kind word uttered and repeated

By the voice of Nature;

I am a star fallen from the 

Blue tent upon the green carpet.

I am the daughter of the elements

With whom Winter conceived;

To whom Spring gave birth; I was

Reared in the lap of Summer and I

Slept in the bed of Autumn.

The plains are decorated with

My beautiful colours, and the air

Is scented with my fragrance.

As I embrace Slumber the eyes of 

Night watch over me, and as I

Awaken I stare at the sun, which is

The only eye of the day.

I am the lover’s gift; I am the wedding wreath;

I am the memory of a moment of happiness;

I am the last gift of the living to the dead;

I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

But I look up high to see only the light,

And never look down to see my shadow.

This is the wisdom which man must learn.

Kahlil Gibran
