An Evening Primrose Breaks Dry Ground

You have to be tough to be pink...

Perennial Primrose, you're in the pink,
even though you've not a drop to drink.
Why now, of you should I think?
Why should I waste my poet's ink?

Because you're beautiful in the spring.
And appear to be such a fragile thing.

But I know better, I know the truth.
To you I am nothing, but a youth.
A Johnny-come-lately on this soil.
Long before big Texas oil.

But you are here for all time,
perennial and in your prime.

Long after the last oil is gone.
Long after this city has decayed to ruin.
Long after this earth is rust.
Long after you've lost our trust.

You will persevere and I will hold dear,
the pink promising memory of you here.

Of you popping up in a Bluebonnet patch.
Or seeing your face appear in the thatch.
Or in a nest of eggs about the hatch.
Or in the garden behind the gate latch.

Before anything is planted there.
I even see you in a maiden's hair.

Forever etched in my mind,
of that wonderful time,
when I was young and you were mine,
with Primrose hair and in your prime.

Pink...a mix of red and white
Reminder of our human plight
Youthful times do come and go
Like me and Santa Claus
Ho Ho Ho

quite a moving and well written poem, Ron ... enchanting ...

Ron, you've presented the case for the tenacity of the primrose and the tenacity required of being pink. All written with your pink ink. Strange how many of natures toughest things appear to be so delicate at first blush. Beauty, tenacity and pink. Can it be any better? You link it all so smoothly with the last stanza as you recall, when she was yours. Another Ron Hull classic my dear friend. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael

You are PERFECT in pink, Ron! This, like your subject, is flawless. And your initial thought very striking: yes, toughing it out is often pink. The evening primrose is synonymous with nostalgia and well-being. A beautiful and well-rounded tribute. xx

Beautiful poetry, Ronald! And I agree...the Primrose is to be revered....

There must be something psychologically unsound about being that much in love with a flower...or maybe not...e
