A Simple Crown
He plucked a flower from the meadow
and wound it through my hair.
He made a crown for me, his queen,
each flower woven there.
When he left, he took my crown;
he told me, “Luck it brings,”
My heart lives in that meadow still,
now this queen has lost her king.

It’s a work in progress.
