“The Tree and the Flower”

Laurie Kolp created “The Tree and the Flower” from Anna Botsford Comstock’s How to Keep Bees (1905). Please click here to read.

About the poem and the process of composing it, Laurie writes:

The triolet poetry form is one of my favorites, so I challenged myself to write one with selected words and phrases I gathered. In my search for something great, I fell in love with “the silent longing of flowers.” After that, everything just fell into place as it always seems to do when I am writing found poetry.
