His Black-eyed Susans

 

His Black-Eyed Susans

People make so much fuss

about flowers, he’d say,

 

but after he died we found

his camera with a film in it.

 

He’d only taken seven shots,

all of his flower beds –

 

pink and white Petunias,

Lobelia, purple, white,

 

and a stand of yellow

Black-Eyed Susans.
