Tulips come late after daffodils
After violets, dandelions and crocus
Tulips come late and stand in a bunch
Shy as gaudy wallflowers.

Tulips bloom well into the Spring
They need help to shed speared Autumn leaves
Tulips bloom when bees buzz around
And cup them so elegantly.

Most bouquets display a side view
The cup shape daubed in bright color
The view of the bee, stripes and stamen
Thatís the shock of the tulip flower.

Wallflowers huddle, a well shaped bouquet
Huddle in the May breeze
Wallflowers huddle but bees draw them out
Their insides are ready to please.

But they came to dance, not daisy nor rose
Not ragweed nor blooms of the Summer
They came to dance the rites of Spring
Though tardy, thatís still a brave flower.
