The rhododendrons are in flower,
Flaunting their fluted filigree
Proudly for all to see!
No shame is theirs in the bower.

This is Nature’s way of being
Blooming brilliant beautiful
Primordial elegant and wonderful
They are so strong yet so fleeting.

For in a day or two these beauties
Will tumble to the ground in pieces.
But now it seems they hold the aces
The centre of attention theirs is.


We can only wonder at the shows
That Nature’s deepest Being provides
For us! To me it seems, as It guides
Our understanding, the wonder only grows!
