The Eternal Beauty of the Day Lily

Day Lily: On Father’s Day

Eternal Beauty for a Day Lily

Poetry/Prose by Merrill Leonard


She appears in the morning

walk through the Garden,

Her first blush is taken

by the zenith Light.

When the Sun completes

the Day’s journey

Nothing’s more to do.

Work finished as it first began.

Though, her beauty can follow

into a Dream at night

Seen by the first Witness,

Eyes of a Divine Creator.

Morning Beauty magnified

In the Sleep of a Dream

her most glorious colors

eternal in Darkness or Light.

No hope of salvation

Rescued from the Light.

Beauty only for the Day.

Withered by night.

To remember is to see again

Beauty born with the Light

She returns with the Sunrise

Only for a Season born to rise again.
