French marigold

French marigold


The stem is a thick as a newborn baby

And the pollen blows like glitter through 

the air.


French marigold roots are as bendy as 

worms. The marigold grows in soil as

soft as a pillow.


The Petals are as shiny as gold

 and glow like the 

moon at night. The 

petals dance like little

ants at night.

One Response to “French marigold”

  1. Harry, you have really gone for similes in this poem. Some of them work really well and add to the description such as, ‘soft as a pillow’ and ‘shiny as gold.’ However, I don’t really understand ‘thick as a newborn baby.’ What do you mean by that?
