Lily (a poem)


Photo by Åsmund Arup Seip on Unsplash

cover the lilies in trailing silk
delicacy wrapped in more
what once was white protected now
no fear of winter’s chill

when days are dark, colder still
from the window, I shall watch
the frozen lake of captured ghosts
my Lily being but one


Thank you for reading
