They should have named a flower after you.
There are Daffodils, Dahlias, & Daisies too;
Didicus, Dianthus, and Delphiniums of blue,
and other "D" names that I have not a clue.
Even a Dandelion blooms and blows its seed.
No comparison; in fact I wish they'd recede,
'cuz we know they're just an "annoying weed".
So why not a Dorothy, yes a Dorothy indeed.
If I were a horticulturist of which I am not,
I'd have a "Dorothy" growing in my flower pot
with fragrance and aroma never to be forgot
and beauty so rich that it couldn't be bought.
Maybe not by name, but this I can guarantee;
in Sterling Alaska, a flower, you'll always be.
I believe there's not one who wouldn't agree;
in fact some may say you're a flowering tree.
