Carnation (Nonet)

 Carnation a flower of beauty
All in bright colors we do see
Rises in the morning sun
Nice aromas divine
As we come to see
Tulips touch me
In garden

Carnation (Acrostic)

Carnation nature’s gift to us
Adjust flower standing up tall
Returning fragrance bring us joy
Natural bloom did curtsied today
All see garden’s beautiful show
Today soil gave birth to a bud
Inside our heart a smile is seen
Only once a year flowers beam
Never disappoints floral dream

 - Rhoda Galgiani
