Misplaced?

by Anna Grossnickle Hines


In a mass of wild confusion

flowers bloom in great profusion,

brilliant dazzling bold infusion,

pink-blue purple stimulation,

red-gold-yellow conflagration,

rousing raucous celebration,

stirring us to jubilation,

echoing the exultation

of their bright and vibrant show!

But, I am curious to know,

since bloomers are not sleepyheads,

why do they grow in flower beds?
