I Heard
by Matthew Tener Wade
Today I heard a flower,
and it whispered me, your name.
I couldn't resist so I picked it up
and now present it to you.

Today I heard a Rose
and it sounded like a heartbeat.
It reminded me of life
and so I brought it to you.

Today I heard a tulip
and it echoed of dancing.
It taught me to waltz
so here I give it to you.

Today I heard a lily
like a splash in still water.
It told me 'just jump in'
and thus I hand it to you.

Today I heard a flower
and it sounded of love.
I couldn't resist so I picked it up
and now I give it to you.

H.W. Beecher said, "What a pity flowers can utter no sound?-A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle,-oh, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!"

Give a flower to the one you love today. You may not be able to hear the flowers but they still say 'I love you'.
