Les Fleurs

Will somebody wear me to the fair?

Orchids. The shy flower.

Will a lady pin me in her hair?

Will a child find me by a stream?

Kiss my petals and weave me through a dream.

~M. Ripperton, sublime

1. “Maya was in the studio with her mother on the day Minnie  recorded “Lovin’ You. The listener can hear her mother sing “Maya, Maya, Maya” to her daughter near the end of the track. Riperton died on July 12, 1979, at age 31, from breast cancer, just shy of Rudolph’s seventh birthday.”
