February 16



There hangs an orchid on the wall

Yellow flowers not shy at all

Looking closely I’m sure you’ll see

Beauty even though they are small


Squinting hard you may even see

The curvy lines of a lady

Head to toe in a cancan dress

With lots of personality


This may be a stretch I confess

To see in a bloom a fancy dress

And lady from the cabaret

It’s fun to picture nonetheless.
