Ode to Lobelia

The cat, it was said
preferred lobelia instead
to delphiniums (blue)
and geraniums (red)

This was just as well, truth to tell,
for delphiniums (blue) were being devoured
By gastropods, in the wee small hours
who have a taste for flowers...

The cat slept all day.
Not in a bed of hay.
But in a floral border
which is really out of order!
