A story about love, written in rhyme for adults
by Carolyn Nelson
LOVE… the strangest of emotions,
Draws a heart to who it will,
And can often set a challenge
It demands that heart fulfil.
Flora may not seem the person
Whose love must be won somehow,
But the fates have deemed her worthy
Of receiving such a vow.
Though the flower sisters loved her,
They could not prevent her fate,
Nor imagine that sweet Flora
Could be left in such a state.
Can one small empathetic child
Help her to find peace at last?
Or will Rodney fail his true love
And leave her trapped in the past?
