Bamboo Begging

If bamboo is okay with you,
I haven’t any flowers
to decorate this poem I made;
I had not enough hours.

The bamboo is plain, I know,
but easy to describe:
tall and thick with brown rings in it–
very easily thrives.

Some other poem with flowers in it
is on the horizon.
I need a spell to bring it here,
while this one begs a living.
