Day Lily




A folded orange secret
Pried open by the sun,
A single day of glory
Allowed but just one story,
Told until the day is done.

A folded orange secret
Be sure you listen close.
Don’t miss the story hour
Of a hundred orange flowers
Muted by the setting sun.

Isn't it wonderful what hides in the earth under the snow, waiting for the sun? Beautiful words for a beautiful flower!
