Ghost of a Flower

“Ghost of a Flower”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

THE GHOST OF A FLOWER

“You’re what?” asked the common or garden spook
Of a stranger at midnight’s hour.
And the shade replied with a graceful glide,
“Why, I’m the ghost of a flower.”

“The ghost of a flower?” said the old-time spook;
“That’s a brand-new one on me;
I never supposed that a flower had a ghost;
Though I’ve seen the shade of a tree.”
