Flower calendar by Cassie Kinney (poem)

Crocuses and daffodils push out of the snow first.
March into April, the Magnolia and Tulips unfold.
The red bud trees and dogwood bloom.
May and June, the Irises and Lilies stretch their petals.
Bee balm, Phlox, Echinacea dots the landscape of July.
Then, Tickseed flowers and black-eyed-Susan's kiss the sun.
I harvest the fruits from flowers till the cold comes.
With that, the plants curl with every passing night.
Death of the foliage and hibernation of the trees,
Of the animals, and me.
