Above clouded land
Float vast mountains in the sky
Upside down planet

Thought this was appropriate
For today’s fashion

Peace 1

A sparkling jewel
Set on ring of greenery
On garden finger

The Peace rose, correctly Rosa 'Madame A. Meilland', is a well-known and successful garden rose. Over one hundred million plants had been sold, as of 1992. It is a Hybrid Tea rose with large flowers of a light yellow to cream color, slightly flushed at the petal edges with crimson-pink. It is hardy and vigorous and relatively resistant to disease, making it popular in gardens as well as in the floral trade.

Lives are thrown away

Walked down to the old dock
To greet the morning

Leaves fall where they may
No wind to blow them away
They crunch under foot
