Thanks Tony. Doodling a bit here. Still not sure about the adjective for the flowers.

Great. Thanks Tony. Steering away from the punctuation for now, but the pause for emphasis is still there.

Yes, I agree the punctuation is not needed. With the stanza and line break the pauses are still there.

I was thinking you could drop the adjective altogether. It's clear the flowers mean a lot to him. He watches the children and the roses!

Yes, thanks Tony. I'm okay with the adjective now, since your suggestion gives a pause which avoids a clipped final line.

Thanks Tink. Yes, I think the patent on this is very much WCW.
