Day 155 - Lily

Bright and brilliant blooms of power
Topping the greenest of stems
Inspire those that used to cower
Life flowing like that of the great Thames
Arching grace strokes of perfection
Call upon a painter's perfect reflection

Proof of power beyond that of man
Lies within this lily of peace
So much more than we ever can
Make, and made without a crease
Yes, some greater being must exist
Such beauties created are hard to resist

So as you gaze upon this art
That nature has brought before your eyes
Let it touch your beating heart
Let it pull from your lips deep sighs
That relax the body and the soul
The Maker of Light has created you whole
