Tulips Blooming in New Zealand

What happened that tulips bloom
everywhere but here? Pastel pink,
Cherry red, Midnight purple, too
Tulips blooming everywhere.

Yellow tulips, the most beautiful,
Stand erect soaking sunlight down their
virile stocks, taunting less beautiful
flowers without knowing that their
shadows block the warmth, steal
light, and greedily grab every
ounce of goodness away from admiring
bulb sprouts.

Bury me beneath
New Zealand’s rocky shore.
Bury me, bury me,
Bury me.
