Do Not Mourn

Do not mourn your loss of fragrance,

do not wish your petals back;

leave off grieving for last summer

as the  winter world goes black.

Take these hours to rest your branches,

let your roots sink deep in soil;

last year’s growth sets up potential

for next summer’s greensome toil.

    Melody, your photography is truly noteworthy. With appropriate credit of course, may I use one from time to time? Let me know if you have a royalties plan established and I don’t mind participating. I simply love the pics.
