“Keeping the Meadows Alive”
The beautiful meadows are filled with red roses.
The softness of the grass under her feet tickled her lightly.
Softly taking steps,
She didn’t want to ruin the landscape.
She wanted to preserve the flowers.
Let them fully bloom.
Once they had fully bloomed,
She would then pick them.
Carry them off to her villa.
For now, these roses will stay.
Stay to keep the meadows alive.
