Five Limericks About Flowers

The Primrose

A pretty primrose in the garden

Wished to grow in a softer pardon

She wanted to thrive

And feel very alive

In comfort like a queen of olden

The Sunflower

There once was a sunflower tall

Whose life was the envy of all

She grew straight and tall

Toward the sun she would call

Her beauty would never let you fall

The Iris

An iris that grew by the stream

Was without a great deal of self-esteem

She thought herself small

With no worth at all

Until she revealed her gold and purple dream

The Rose

A rose in bloom so bright and red

All the other flowers turned their heads

With a scent so sweet

None could compete

Her beauty and grace left them all dead

The Daffodil

A daffodil bloomed in a field

Its bright yellow petals revealed

A trumpet-shaped face

Full of confident grace

With every bloom it would yield

Villanelle Poem

Five Villanelle Poems About Flowers

1. The Call of the Rose

In gardens where the crimson roses bloom,
Their scent intoxicating every breeze.
In hidden corners, shadows they consume.

Petals soft as silk in nature’s loom,
A dance in harmony with honey bees.
In gardens where the crimson roses bloom.

Thorns that warn of a prickly doom,
Yet, their beauty makes the heart at ease.
In hidden corners, shadows they consume.

In daylight’s glow or under moon’s costume,
They hold secrets that no one sees.
In gardens where the crimson roses bloom.

They rise and fall, to life they’re attune,
Surviving storms and winter’s freeze.
In hidden corners, shadows they consume.

Their allure, no heart is immune,
In love and lore, forever keys.
In gardens where the crimson roses bloom,
In hidden corners, shadows they consume.

By Dan Higgins 2024

2. Whisper of the Daisies

Daisies sway in the summer sun,
White and gold in the fields they run.
Whispers of purity, innocence begun.

Their faces lifted to the sky, none are shun,
Under the blue dome, they’re spun.
Daisies sway in the summer sun.

In meadows, by streams, their stories spun,
In childhood dreams, they are won.
Whispers of purity, innocence begun.

From dawn’s first light till the day is done,
In bouquets of joy, they are strung.
Daisies sway in the summer sun.

Through life’s complexities, they stun,
With simple grace, they overrun.
Whispers of purity, innocence begun.

Their charm in simplicity, second to none,
In the language of flowers, they stun.
Daisies sway in the summer sun,
Whispers of purity, innocence begun.

By Dan Higgins 2024

3. The Lotus’s Tale

Rising from the mud, the lotus ascends,
Unstained, untouched, its beauty transcends.
In adversity’s face, a message it sends.

Bathed in dawn’s light, its petals extends,
In murky waters, its purity defends.
Rising from the mud, the lotus ascends.

Symbol of rebirth, its tale never ends,
From darkness to light, its journey wends.
In adversity’s face, a message it sends.

Its resilience and grace, the soul mends,
In silent wisdom, a hand it lends.
Rising from the mud, the lotus ascends.

Through storm and strife, it never bends,
In life’s garden, a lesson it attends.
In adversity’s face, a message it sends.

With open heart, its love it sends,
In each bloom, a prayer it sends.
Rising from the mud, the lotus ascends,
In adversity’s face, a message it sends.

By Dan Higgins 2024

Sunflowers stand tall in summer’s dance,
To the sun, they cast a loving glance.

Their heads held high, in a trance,
In fields of gold, they prance.
Sunflowers stand tall in summer’s dance.

They follow the sun, in its daily advance,
In their loyalty, they entrance.
In their golden glow, dreams enhance.

Their seeds of hope, in birds they plant,
In nature’s rhythm, they chant.
Sunflowers stand tall in summer’s dance.

Their radiant faces, the heart enchant,
In their presence, worries decant.
In their golden glow, dreams enhance.

In the language of flowers, they grant.

Five Sonnets About Flowers

Purple Allium

Amidst the garden’s sweet serenity

Proud Allium stands, tall and bright purplish-blue

A radiant beauty, brimming with energy

Its spherical bloom, a vision anew

From its lofty stem, strong yet so slender

A hint of motion, in the gentle breeze

Its petals spread, a graceful, purple splendour

A sight to behold, bringing one to their knees

O’ Allium, your charm, so pure and divine

A fountain of hope, in a dull and dark world

You inspire me with your grace, so sublime

My heart fills with gratitude, unfurled

May you bloom forever, as a perpetual wonder

A delight for the senses, forever pondered


In the garden, blossoms Jasmine fair

Its scent so sweet, my heart it seeks to lift

Its petals soft, a pleasant sight to wear

Nature’s indulgence, a much-needed gift

Oh, Jasmine, your beauty graces the night

As a calming breeze, it meanders through

Your fragrance fills, the moonlit air so light

A soothing presence, that eases all through

O’ Majestic flower, pure and evergreen

Your essence lingers, in the room you bless

Our hearts align, with nature, we convene

A tingle our senses and minds caress!

In my garden, I shall nurture you dear

As Jasmine’s beauty is forever clear


In the field, rows of Tulips stand in pride

Their cups so bright, colours that dance and sing

A world of hues, for the heart to confide

Nature’s spectacle, that life doth bring

From the long stem, the petals, airily sprout

Their form a beauty, that’s forever renowned

Through spring and fall, in weather hot or devout

Their charm and grace, with time are crowned

Oh, Tulips, your bouquet so fresh and rare

It brightens the heart, and lightens the soul

You remind us to be, with nature and share

A bond that’s forever, a story to enroll

In the garden, of life, we welcome thee

As Tulips’ beauty, forever shall be

Pink Peony

In the garden, Peonies gleam so bright

Their blooms, a pink so mesmerising

Their scent, a blissful, sweet delight

Nature’s expression, so tranquilising

O’ Pink Peony, your beauty, a true gift

As your petals unfold, and your grace extend

The birds exult, their melody, so swift

As the breeze wafts, your essence, it send

Through the years, you bloom and inspire

A symbol of hope, in life’s fleeting bloom

You spark our dreams and stoke our fire

Our hearts you ignite and our souls you groom

In our garden, forever you shall bide

As Pink Peony’s beauty, shall forever abide


Amidst the tropical forest, Orchids reside

Their blooms, an extravagant charm to behold

A world of colours, that never seems to chide

A vision of grace, forever to unfold

Their stems so long, the tendrils, so lush

The petals, so intricate, grace they hold

The fragrance so soft, so warm and plush

Their essence, an allure, that never grows old

Oh, Orchids, a beauty from far away

May you flourish, on this earth, so grand

In my heart, forever you shall stay

As you brighten my world, with your stand

In my garden, you shall have a place

As Orchids forever shall grace and embrace
