In Their Fragrance and Their Colors

In their fragrance and colors
the flowers of her gardens
defining her in some ways
the beauty that she treasures
sharing with friends and family
Nature at its finest
the gifts of the creator
in this His garden
the good, good earth
Lilies of the valley
roses in their season
the hill alive and tended
the lilies, the crocuses
the tulips in their turns
Just to name a few
Watching her move
coming to their fragrance
drinking in their colors
a smile upon her face

written as birthday gift
for my mother, Patricia Cobb,
on the occasion of her 75th birthday
