Oncidium

—————————————————-

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.
