Pale Floaty Lilies


Floating down above,
The swollen ground grave,
With blooming buds stretching,
The darkness that's watching.
They're the pale floaty lilie!

The sorrow is painted,
So dull, o tear tinted,
Flooded with bereavement,
Believed to be meant,
All around the pale floaty lilies!

It came from sand,
Sand of the land,
And it goes six feet in a hollow,
This beneath the willow,
They're the pale floaty lilies!

We loved the tint,
Whose God had a hint,
They lived for a season,
Whose God had a reason,
All around the pale floaty lilies!

The right time ticks,
The chosen human clicks,
Off to stop the breath,
Now that's human death,
They're the pale floaty lilies!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
