Sweet Peas

A poem by Patricia Bradbrook

Delicate flowers on long slender stems

Climb so high

Tendrils cling bravely to string supports 

Which each spring we tie

To canes so tall

When buds peep out and begin to grow 

Wondrously vibrant colours begin to show

Their buds unfurl like sails in the wind

Fragrant smells waft around in the air

Eagerly we wait for first full flowers bloom

A multitude of colour there

Ready to pick and smilingly share
