Jack Scott writes

Conspiracy of Flowers

Flowers flourish 

in field and greenhouse, 
in my intention 
to pick and give 
some of them to you.

Lest I wilt them with my fervor, 

or they diminish in my hand 
I hurry them to you 
hoping that they linger 
in your affection 
attaching some of it to me.
