Penny Black

Dark Flowers

From a nursery
Of misery
She plants them in the park

By a statue
Is where she once lived
Where she grew them in the dark

She plants dark flowers
In the middle of the night
Dark flowers
Until the early morning light

She has dark flowers
In an empty room
She puts them outside
Where they grow beneath the moon

She wore dark flowers
All over her hair
And beneath dark flowers
No one knows not where

Now the time has come
And there’s only one
For the world to see

Now the lady’s gone
Along came someone
Who does this in her memory

She plants dark flowers
In an empty room
Dark flowers
Until they all have bloomed
