August Lilies

 

August Lilies blooming late this year

But in abundance lift their snow white heads

As if to say they like the dryness of this season

At summer's end the stalks stand straight

With buds and bloom in bright white

As if waiting for a lovely wedding cheerful

Or a somber funeral tearful

They brighten the area where they bloom

In classy form and regal

 

August Lillies (C) 2007 Quentin Clingerman
