About a Lily

      i hear that there's
something about a lily

something touches us
   someplace inside


a glowing translucence
      that's somehow
a gentle shift of colour
   from white to white

something about a lily


the small boy loves his
   new toy riding tractor

(with a cart and a name)


      lilies have not 
that much strength

even less power


what power they have
   is a fragile beauty

a toddler has no
      great strength

not much power

   his strength is his
joyous discoveries

      and his wonder
