Human beings can be very unjust
Some are dark, some are blind
But she teaches me to ever trust
In the victory of love true and kind

She flows with the rhythm silently
Subtly sets the tone
Fulfils something for everybody
Each feels she is their own

She flows, stands, dances, hovers
Softens hunters, strengthens gatherers
She makes Knights of her lovers
Kings out of gardeners

Defeats the deserts of soil and heart
An oasis all on her own
Awakens new worlds, reawakens that part
Of me that has turned to stone

Be ever on the look-out for her
Like a watchman from his tower
Protect, when you see her; thus will you know her:
She who flows is the flower

She opens her heart for all to drink
Who bear the natural thirst
She expresses what all lovers think
Because she was the first

An irresistible smile is her crown
Radiating unselfishly
She lifts my spirits when I am down
Gives unceasingly

She arrests with quiet dignity
Humbly proud, vulnerable
Salvation of the concept of purity
Accessible but unsoilable

Natural, normal, ordinary
Caring, healing gem
She flows with her lovers’ and guardians’ story
Encourages, comforts, ennobles them

She awakens tears and gentle smiles
Just by being there
Beautiful above all transient styles
A beauty always and fair

Her lovely whiff, caught from afar
Releaser of the deepest sighs
She is a mirror of heaven’s star
Lights up my soul and eyes

She’s nature’s victory over human art
Mightier than pen and sword
Speaks deeply to the human heart
Without saying a word

And has one distinct feminine feature:
In her grace lies her power.
She flows with the currents of nature
That’s why she’s called the Flower…
