Iris Carols

Red Iris

I'm dreaming of a red iris,
True red, unlike the ones we know,
With its petals glistening,
I'll have fun listening
To the raves from judges at the show.

I'm dreaming of a red iris,
Bright red, with bud count over ten.
With a stalk that's sturdy,
And a form that's "purty"
It will win each show it's entered in.

I'm dreaming of a red iris
With every cross I undertake.
May the pods be heavy I've bred,
And may all my seedlings be bright red!
