Flowers/Our World

Summer gardens, full of flowers,

Soak up the sunny summer hours

    And there, amongst the rest, behold

    The cheerful, orange marigold.


Calendula - its other name -

Has brought this plant a lot of fame:

   It’s healing properties in cream

   Mean humans hold it in esteem.


Cuts and wounds from when you fall?

This cream will heal them one and all.

    Rashes, burns all cause you grief.

    Calendula will bring relief.


These mellow yellow marigolds

Look doleful when the days are cold -

     But in the sunshine, petals bright,

      They make a truly joyous sight.


Year by year they’ll come again,

Resplendent in both sun or rain

    To grace your garden, bring delight

    And paint a truly splendid sight.
