Water Lily

staying proud and high in dazzling white
smiling among a thousand green
the wind whispers about your might
even rain drops kiss your wings tonight

when others are down you shine at night
a hundred critters scamper and run
pulled to you, a beacon so bright
singing songs of your amused delight

to pluck you and to take flight
to smell the fragrance you exude
forever mine to look at night
to smolder you though would not be right

your strength and courage your peers cite
standing on your strong roots
you shelter those who run with fright
and stand against those who slight

opening up as you always might
you make my heart yearn
to gaze at you and gain insight
to wade towards you to your light

hearts afire you set alight
poetry your bloom inspires
seething with desire put right
beautiful you look first light

with glory of the moon in sight
i look upon you with a smile
spilling yellow dust you invite
at last thus we may unite
