Helleborus is in a hurry–
Get me in my ground, come now scurry.
The soil is ripe and ready,
plant me, I’m tall and steady,
forget your sketch, you make me flurry.
I’ll skip my shower, put off my work,
All my other tasks I’ll gladly shirk.
I’m under your beckon call,
be patient, I won’t forestall.
Your enchanting; my piece of artwork.
Be calm dear Borus, I can’t resist,
Your handsome stance draws me to persist.
Your exquisite flowerets,
favor more eyes to merit,
I’ll indulge; your beauty mustn’t be missed!

Love this conversation with your subject. I don’t know this flower. Spring is here! I look forward to sharing this month of poetry with you.
Thanks Margaret, send some spring up my way, it’s trying to get warmer but taking it’s time-so I’ll fill in the voids with nature.
