Essence Cain

In the Flower Market

About the Poem

Poem originally written in English.

Tiger lilies roar in the cold April rain.
Tulips seek friends with their spray of pollen.

Sunflowers flash in the night,
illuminating the world like a candle.

Bluebells drip with dew—
they love just being themselves.

Marigolds sing, mango trees ding.
Orchids fly like birds in the wind.

Flowers from all over the world
spread their colors like peacocks.

Peace is what puts them all together.

Written by Lori Galambos’s fourth grade class
