Violet ©

Paige Chia
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
1998

Joy the flower that lives
on a cold grey dawn;
warmth, its being gives
the pale gold morn.

Violet she who seems
so ungiven to chatter,
rekindles Day that teems
with stone cold clatter.

Leaf-flowers in early light
are such a mighty thing;
soft unlike the Night
and frail, yet, enduring.

So she lives, our Violet
whose stillness still revives
the morning Joy appeared
and warmed our pallid lives.
