Oh the lover does not understand
How she sent the lone flower
He is unmindful of her plans
How she walked along the burning tar
To find one green patch of tuft
To spring across the road
And quickly throw her gift
From across the window.
Too busy with chores
Not much time to spare
Done sure of her, content
sedulous love-driven veneration
He does not wait
Weary on his own
He has no patience
Seeing the flower he delights
And then tosses aside
the next moment,
Forgetful of his own summoning
Dissimsive of his beloved’s
risk-taking and intent.
