Flowers (Les Fleurs)

In English they are called ‘Straw flowers’
But the French call them ‘Immortels’
In English we say ‘Ground Cherries’
But to the French they are ‘Amour en Cage’
In English we call them ‘Daffodil’
The French say ‘Narcisse des Poète’
In English we call it ‘Spiderwort’
The French say ‘Ephémérine de Virginie’
I’m moving to France.

 

Day 8: “Poets have been writing about flowers since, oh, the dawn of time …”
