Katherine Mansfield: the flowers petals fold

"There's a gold sheen on these flower petals as they fold more truly mine, more like to my desire"

Secret Flowers


The flower petals fold. They are by the sun
Forgotten. In a shadowy wood they grow
Where the dark trees keep up a to-and-fro
Shadowy waving. Who will watch them shine
When I have dreamed my dream? Ah, darling mine,
Find them, gather them for me one by one.

Katherine Mansfield
