about

a little song for lovely layered flowers.

lyrics

peony, peony,
bud wrapped so tightly,
hiding your face needing more time to grow.
ohhhhhh

peony, peony,
blooming so suddenly,
white faces blush when your pale pink petticoats show.
ohhhhhh

peony, peony,
ants march with dignity,
carrying flags down the street so we all know.
ohhhhhh

peony, peony,
petals fall daintly,
cover the ground at your feet in your own snow.
ohhhhhh

peony, peony,
body lays lazily,
carried by ants to rest somewhere where we don’t know.
