Reflections

Only A Weed, Indeed

Gloria R Barron

I asked a scholarly teacher,
(For I am a curious creature)
“What is this plant that died?”
“Oh, it’s just a weed,” she replied.
It was with great surprise,
that I began to realize
She was Blind to the Beauty Before Her eyes
the plant I Had in Mind
Had the Loveliest of Design
Yet she spoke with great scorn
of Beauty Alive before she was Born!
How arrogant to presuppose
it is just for you that everything grows!
“Just a weed,” indeed!
I Loved that weed.
