This definately must be read aloud to hear the flow. It's very symbolic. I might add that what inspired it was Drkpoet's Only in a Dream. So thanks for the thought. :)

Elegy- Little Weed

"I planted you so long ago,
& now you have begun to grow,"
Deep in the soil, just a seed,
"So tall you will grow, my Little Weed!"

"I promise to take care of you,"
& Since mommy says, it must be true.
"Everyday i'll come to sing your song.
I waited for a weed like you so long!"

So short has grown the day...
Not long, like they seem in May.
"I've been busy, here & there,
No time for me to think or care."

& Soon it got much colder,
Little Weed was not much older.
Poor Little Weed withered up to die
Without so much as a tear or sigh.

We shall mourn the loss of Little Weed,
Who grew from such a tiny seed,
Who never saw 2 inches or a flower.
Oh, the life of Little Weed had turned so sour....

Next time you think you might plant a seed,
Remember the sad fate of poor Little Weed.
