Pheasant's Eye

Family: Ranunculaceae

Latin: Adonis vernalis.


Sun feathered petals of light,

Yellow pheasants eye to make your garden bright,

Of lime rich soil I thrive,

In America and Asia.

Through mythology I’m alive.


A boy of beauty, killed by beast,

Adorned by Venus,

Through a flower, immortalized at least.
