Last To Bloom

When last in the kitchen garden nook doorway to bloom

These neglected thought by all no shows

Towering now over twenty feet

Soaring over all those first to bloom and blossom

Those first had faided so quickly

When put to the summer test of heat and drought

Not these they endured

No sign of surrendering to challenges

Perhaps that is because they took their time

And in taking their time gained substance of strength.
