latin names for flowers
refers to one specific
plant species (&variety)

so help me susan

bedraggled when
old blossoms fade
a coneflower is also
called echinacea 

worshipped almost
for rumored benefits

let me say right away
i am no expert in this

so let me say now
that you understand

my lack and failing
that there are many
subjects and fields

where my ignorance
is deep and wide

where i can say
i truly do not know

witness my idiotic
expression and my
tendency to grin
