Ode to an Evening Primrose

Although this ode that I wrote does not quite describe Flagstaff, I feel compelled to post it after seeing some of the species that inspired it in the first place.

I search thee out with earnestness
Across white, wind-blown dunes
For you are truly marvelous
Beneath the light of moon

Your bloom is splendidly dove-white
And ever so redolent
You truly are a fetching sight
Imbued with elegance

Heart-shaped petals, precisely formed
They are your cynosure
Prodigious compared to the norm
Such glamour and allure
