"You Were Made Like Wildflowers"

by Iarrthóir na Fírinne

Age Group: Adult

You were made like wildflowers,
yours was an autumn blossom-
an essence of joy on display,
your sustenance was
every day, life itself
scenting the world with
your simplicity of presence.
You were made like wildflowers,
yours was a winter to endure-
a trying of the soul, so cold
stood firm in the soil
so bold, never wilting
a portrait of strength
suspending the season of growth.
You were made like wildflowers,
yours was a summer bouquet-
sprouting up wild in wide pastures
in purple and gold
hue that secures, inspired
a sense of closeness
with the land, the one you loved.

Yours are made like wildflowers,
You made spring eternal-
burgeoning in mind and heart
unfenced and unbound
as you depart, you lay down
a batch of seedlings,
to replenish the garden with light.

Author's Notes: For Aunt Gaddle, aged 102, left this earth on St. Patrick's Day 2006, forever in my soul.
