My Lilly

(Anacreontic Verse)

Oh my sweet Lilly
so stately and true
graceful and long
soft and delicate
white and pure
long lasting
like love should
when in bloom
brightening a spring
with tenderness
an aroma
like a sweet perfume
touching my heart
leaving a song
of memories
you are beautiful
the color in life
you are my lilly
I love you

    I am very attentive to flowers since I have a roof garden when I grow different flowers and post their pictures every day at FB. I love lilies. The way you describe them, dear Edwards, you make them bloom a second time!
