To the Hollyhock

I got to walk in Hollyhocks today. So lovely. It's like stepping back 100 years ago. I'm not sure why Hollyhocks seem such an old fashioned flower, but they do, and they are.
To the Hollyhock -

Sweet and pink, long and tall,
Surrounding like a fortress wall,
One hundred and some years ago,
Quaint and lovely, just as now.
