Official West Union, WV Poem

PARADISE

by Christina Taylor

Heavenly Blues with pale perfume
suffuse the picket fence.
Profuse, these mini-skies in bloom
delight the eye immense.

Begonias court the bumblebees
and roses boldly blush
as fuchsia cones erect with ease
near creepers, green and lush.

Golden straws exude nirvana,
drink the day-spring beams
as darts of lavender pierce the dawn
of dark Datura dreams.

Lilies curl with flair and grace
in faint and fiery hues,
and mums embrace their proper place
'mid dainty Palace Blues,

and pollen swells where sprightly dwells
the flutter of butterflies,
and hummers plunge to nectar bells
in our garden paradise,

where boundless beauty celebrates
'til hearts on petals fly,
and music daily resonates
through the quaint West Union sky.

2006 Christina Taylor
