5d
(of the genus Veronica)


Oh Veronica
your bright eyes are
Cat’s eyes
Angel’s  eyes
the sum of all that is blue
with the twinkling
eye of a Milkmaid
you watch amidst the green
as if more than willing
in fact
positively asking
to be seen
you are dainty
you are petite
of all the small flowers
that bloom in the wild
you are
irresistibly
sweet
for all the little flowers
