La Fleur De Beau (The Beautiful Flower)

a poem by Meena

Oh! My delicate darling, the sweet smell in you,
breaks the hearts of bees
and breaks mine too.

Is it your stunning beauty that
lets them surround you?
Is it your kindness that
lets you share your honey with them?

Your beauty, makes me breathless;
With love, my eyes hold you,
My hands reach out to touch and feel you;
“Oh no” my heart says, hurt not your
delicate darling.

With love, my eyes hold you;
With love, I stroll on, leaving my heart.

Oh! my delicate darling, the gifted beauty in you;
breaks the heart of the zephyr
and breaks mine too.
