“For Lily, age 15, on her Birthday”


Green LilyPhoto: Jacqueline Casey

So beautiful the flowers of the field;

so tranquil in a world that does not spin.

So grateful as they face the morning light.

They decorate that happy place they’re in.

May Lily, best of all, attired and bright;

her smile the better part of all her threads;

may she_ her mother’s awesome-eyed delight_

spin not throughout her future life ahead.

Each birthday’s happiness may spread its arms

and match her lovely heart; her inner glow.

And as she grows her beauty with her charms

be benefit for all whom she may know.

This lovely girl who dances in the field

May Lily blossom with each year’s best yield.
