Pretty in Pink

Don’t be fooled by the blush

Or swan’s head

In a bow

Strength does not always show

But do not try to

Chow

There is more to this beauty

Than what meets

The eye

Even if in first glance

She appears to be

Shy.

 

 

Fun Fact: The tuber of this flower is semi-poisonous. Fishermen would grate it, mix it with water and lime, and sprinkle the mixture in lakes and ponds to stun the fish so they would rise to the surface to be collected.
