Women Are Perennials

Hosta - Wikipedia

Women Are Perennials

Women become perennials;
Starting out as little green shoots;
Then to annuals, the hardest stage,
Uprooted time after time;
Until they become hostas
With wide skirts
And tall purple blossoms;
And when they gather,
In grace and dignity,
Wide leaves touching:
There is nothing
As beautiful
As they.
