I would rather wear a crown of flowers in my hair
Than sport a necklace of diamonds.
For the flowers represent the true beauty in the world,
The gifts of Mother Nature
Doing the work of the world,
While standing silently in the sun.
They are those who take care of us.
I want to connect with them
And take care of them too.
I love the Earth and I would proudly wear
The flowers she has gifted to teach me
That she loves me in return,
That to sustain the life that sustains me,
Means that we will live forever together.
