tulips

once he bought her tulips
to put upon her windowsill
because he thought her beautiful
and wanted her to know of this
but she would not approve of it
and called it inexcusable
and so he gave her silences
cold and painful silences

no one buys her flowers
to put upon her windowsill
because she is not beautiful
though to him still beautiful
pretty coloured tulips
sitting on the market stall
once he bought her tulips
now never shall again

[a sad tale in a deliberately naive style]
