Cotinus - the smoke bush


You gave me diamonds, I gave you smoke.
You gave me water, I gave you hope.
You gave me earth - I rested my feet.
By the shed in my garden we used to meet.
You gave me sunlight that shone from above.
At the end of the summer I glowed with your love
My colours were many, red, brown, orange, yellow
Our love became strong, bonded and mellow.
