The Pink Azalea

It is all beauty and no smell,

Like the Venus de Milo,

All heaven and no hell…

A dominance in the room

It assumes…

Yet it lacks, like the Venus,

That extra touch…

Dark, glossy leaves, yes,

Contrasting with bright pink blooms,

A splendid show for sure,

And a kind of charm,

Indeed, if anything,

Almost too much.

Even so, as with the Venus,

I love it well.
