At The End Of A Modified Stem

the sepal and petals and stamens all grow
with carpals, arranged all around in a whorl
and this is complete in the way it has four
at the end of a modified stem.

the sepal is usually shaded a green,
retaining a look that is more like a leaf,
enclosing a bud and protecting you see
at the end of a modified stem.

the petals are coloured and brighter than that
of sepals to make all the insects attract,
who pollinate flowers wherever they're at
at the end of a modified stem.

the stamens and carpels are sexual parts.
the stamen consists of an anther atop
a filament like a gigantical stalk
at the end of a modified stem.

the carpal embodies a stylish neck,
an ovary, ovule, egg in a sac.
her gametophyte is a gametofact
at the end of a modified stem.

the stigma resides at the carpally tip
to serve as a platform for pollen to sit,
arriving by wind or a bug who alit
at the end of a modified stem.
