Which Flower Will You Pick?

From my Old Poems collection

You cut away the bougainvillea
For growing fierce and lovely wild
And breaking down your walls of sorts
The lonely stones that you compiled

You won’t abide those flaming flowers
Stretching always toward the sun
Perhaps some placid morning glories
That close their eyes when day is done
