This poem came to me when I finally learned to accept compliments.

  The Regret of a Flower

 
 
You have taught me to accept
compliments gracefully,
because when I cut them
too close to the bud,
what I have is a stem
and a dead plume in my hand
taking up all of the space
where the love should be.
