retell it in words and in touch, it is lovely

The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on the brow
of the flower,
and retell it in words and in touch,
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
