WILDFLOWER by means of Alexander Shaumyan
She's a wildflower, permit her be,
Don't attempt to make her into whatever she's not--
She's quick-tempered, livid and hot,
And stormy and unruly just like the sea.
And allow the blazing ardour in her eyes
Sing poetry inside her middle untamed,
That in her hobbies like a welcome flame
Burns brightly in defiance and not dies.
And if one thousand deaths may still rain on me,
I'll think her mild presence come alive
Within each one breath I take--now delivered to life--
Ignited through her spirit daring and loose.
