The Wishing Flower


In a pot in my garden
By the pond with the fishes
Is a flower that seems to like
Spreading lots of wishes.

I came across it yesterday
I'd not seen it there before
And now I wonder how it got here
Where people can't ignore.

The pot is golden brown
The stem is thick and green
The flower's lots of colours
Like a rainbow to be seen.

It sits there looking pretty
Shining when it's touched
And letting people know
About their wishes, very hushed.

I told it what I wished
And it said that it would be!
So next year I know I'll have
Some proper, grown-up teeth!

In a pot in my garden
By the pond with the fishes
Is a flower that seems to like
Spreading lots of wishes.

I came across it yesterday
I'd not seen it there before
And now I wonder how it got here
Where people can't ignore.

The pot is golden brown
The stem is thick and green
The flower's lots of colours
Like a rainbow to be seen.

It sits there looking pretty
Shining when it's touched
And letting people know
About their wishes, very hushed.

I told it what I wished
And it said that it would be!
So next year I know I'll have
Some proper, grown-up teeth!
