ORCHIDS

Beside the peony blooms they bloom
With a pep and blush and not gloom
In a spike they cover my garden view
Some to spin the spiral stair but few

Overlooking my orchard laden with fruits
Here to there move their roots
Awaiting with blooms without a think
From the sudden spring into a pink

Twinkles above gave a gaze zoom
Like eye of folks on the bridegroom
Gossips all around about their beauty grew
With their charm dipped in brew

Swan-blood-tiger they sprout
With care and patience I do tout
When someone fuss over me, I move to
The mother orchid laden with dew

My friends offer them loud in gush
To make my cheek enjoy a blush
And have pastoral dances round and round
In the army of my orchids unbound.
