The Village Flower Show
Flowers with graceful forms
Bewitching shades of colour and exquisite perfume
Silent influences unconsciously felt
Loaves of bread nestle with plump sausage rolls

While the tearoom hums to happy, sated patrons
Fruits, vegetables and flowers, will the Village Hall transform
Would but the outside world offer not bullets and bombs
But sweeter cakes, better fruit and fairer flowers from earth's bounty
