Glory

The morning glory is a weed,
Invasive vines and spread by seed,
It grows where you don’t want it to.
With flowers purple, white or blue.

It likes bright sun and climbing space;
In morning light it shows its face.
It blossoms sometimes at night, too.
With flowers purple, white or blue.

Its climbing vines are very green;
It sends out runners, some unseen.
I’ve come to like it, why can’t you?
With flowers purple, white or blue.

The morning glory is a weed.
With flowers purple, white or blue.
