A Leaf of A Flower:

by Scott Cole   May 24, 2015


I am a green leaf
I am not a flower,
So I am not never
The man of the hour.

I don't get your looks
I don't get your stares,
I'm part of this plant
So you should share.

Yes you are so pretty
As pretty as a flower,
Your smell and your colors
They can over-power,

And all your good looks
Are from Mother Nature,
I guess that's the reason
Of your care-free behavior.

I know your on the top
Right in the center,
When it comes to looks
You're always the winner.

But don't forget about me
For I am but your leaf,
So we're in this together
And I shall never leave.

For it takes us both
To do this plant thing,
For I am the muscle
And you are the bling.

Your nice to stare at
No one looks at a leaf,
You get all the attention
When it should be me.

For you little flower
You are only for show,
And without my help
You would never grow.

You are tall and slim
With looks that can wilt,
Unless you are fake
And made out of silk.

Cause clearly a flower
Would have no existence,
If it was not for leaves
And our photosynthesis.

    What a nice peace and I enjoyed reading. You said it so well. We recognize all the beautiful flowers but not the leaves not realizing that they also play an important role.
