Calla Lilly


The magnificent beauty
Unique in its appearance 
Used since the days of Rome
Marked in the passage of winter solstices   
Treasured and cherished 
Lover of water, pure and elegant
Fragrant and bliss 
With a tear drop center 
Once gracing the royal gardens of Paris
Cut and resting in glass, posing on tables 
Clinched together in the arms of a bride 
With lace and white ribbons a showstopper 
One can’t deny 
In a rainbow of colors made for the eye
