Eager Stem: A Sonnet


What use an eager stem without a flower?
'Tis but a weed to be plucked, discarded
desolate and lonely, left to wither.
Ah, for such proud stalk this fate's too sordid.

And how may bud longing to blossom,
find reason to bloom detatched from the vine
that carries sap for unflolding's ransom?
Full petals spread best when drunk on such wine.

Yet more is needed for stem and flower,
if sweeter, stronger, and finer to grow;
to weather storms and circumstances sere.
What ist? Ah, beloved, 'tis this we know.

Affection's warmth, tender showers of care;
what nurture's most desire, this love we share.
