Gloxinia-our garden

When we bought a plant in a remote village by a hill

We held it close and kept very still

The promise of blooms made us hope

It seemed like there was no scope

Foe deep purple flowers to blossom

It took 11 months, but they are awesome

The flowers are multi-hued, they speak

They are wide enough for a bird’s beak

They beckon and smile and shine

They made you giddy, like the richest wine!!!
