Flowers for everything.
Flowers always give colour,
Always lift the gloom,
Flowers beautiful flowers,
Their joyous aroma fills the room.
Flowers for the happy,
A bouquet for a bride,
Sunflowers for summer,
Lilies for one who has died.
A spray upon the table,
A heartfelt bunch for a friend,
A posy for the carnival queen,
Roses with love they send.
Flowers at the opera,
Flowers red yellow and blue,
Flowers for the altar,
Flowers just to say thank you.
Flowers for our remembrance,
Flowers for those who fought and died,
Wreaths on the cenotaph,
Poppies worn with such pride.
Flowers for a colleague leaving,
Bouquets and sprays for the new mother,
Delivery of a colourful basket,
From a secret admirer or a lover.
Blooms from the garden,
Grown with such tender loving care,
But the most beautiful flowers for my darling,
Given with love for being there.
