Cobbles Speak Up

Cobbles Speak Up

"Do you envy our beauty?"
the blooms asked the cobblestones.

"Envy? Not at all," came the reply.

"Surely our scent?"

"Envy your scent? Never," came the reply.

"Don't be stubborn. Our delightful shape?"

"What is shape?" the cobbles asked.
"Time and water made us what we are."

"But humans praise us,"
the flowers insisted.

"That is nothing," the stones answered.
"They caress us each day."
