There Were Flowers There

I caught the hem of my dream
at the turn of the stairs
and it was all pave light

and diamond blue in flight
all loveliness then.
I remember when she said,

the princess, softly
from the green garden chair
that there were flowers there

in the garden of the day to day
and the children zinnia splashed,
at summer play

and it seemed it would always be that way
and yet, was not.
