Flowers withdraw
Their scent snuffed out
by Autumn winds

Sleeping to the hum
of tube trains whooshing
through twilight London
buried deep

Kissed by Spring
and arranged to order,
they’ll proudly glide down
pew-lined aisles

or personalised and
artistically sculptured,
be laid with reverence
on scented graves
