My Orchid and I



The day you came I knew nothing of you.

Short but elegant, you unfurled your wings,

To reveal an inner beauty for my eyes to feed.

And the fragrance of you I wished no end to be.

Seeking to prolong your beauty I delved into books.

A year has passed and here you stand.

Tall and proud, your beauty enhanced.

An Orchid expert you have made of me.

As I feed you today, I think I see you nod.

As if to say thank you to me.

I will be honest and say the truth,

There is none more deserving of thank you than you.
