Ten Tears For A Flower Wilted

(#ouiguy)

I shed ten tears for a flower wilted

Your petals have been dried toughened by time

After many seasons your earth tilted.

Along the St. Lawrence snow has melted

Young players sprout despite salt and grime

I shed ten tears for a flower wilted.

Instead of retiring your stick, once gilded

You raise it, shout, shake off slivers of slime

After many seasons your earth tilted.

But the old game continues unstilted

A man’s name is worth more than a dime

I shed ten tears for a flower wilted.

One must let honour flow unbolted

Here, even today, I hear your heart chime

After many seasons your earth tilted.

The law allows a bed to be quilted

From humiliation a blossom shall climb

I shed ten tears for a flower wilted

After many seasons your earth tilted.
