Flower-like sonnet by Paweł Markiewicz

I cherish the dreamy crocus.
I love the moony cornflower.
I make love to bemused cactus.
I affect dreamed daffodil.

You are fond of vague elder.
You love back a misty dahlia.
You dote on languorous heather.
You idolize the faint freesia.

We prize hazy chrysanthemum.
We treasure indistinct daisy.
We value dim cheery blossom.
We admire the lulling lily.

They like the calming amaranth.
They relish soothing edelweiss.

affect = archaic love
