soil of the earth

a lily grown from mixed soil
blooms with strength of form
beauty carved by God above
is naked laid to face the storm

a daisy sprouts from muddy earth
and nods her dainty head
the soldiers with their boots of steel
will crush and leave her, dead.

a dandelion in the sun
in pungent earthy ground
displays her colour, proud and bright
but rodents munch her down.

a rose grows on its prickled bush
in midst of summer’s day
warm fingers pluck her from her branch
and put her on display.
