Here you will find the Poem Flowers And Light of poet Lesbia Harford

Flowers And Light

Flowers have uncountable ways of pretending to be 
Not solid, but moonlight or sunlight or starlight with scent. 
Primroses strive for the colour of sunshine on lawns 
Freesias are flames wherein light more than heat is desired, 
As candles on altars burn amethyst, golden and white. 
Wall-flowers are sun streaked with shade. Periwinkles blue noon 
At the height.
