The earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Like a fistful of orange lollipops,
A gift from the earth,
Satin lilies pop out of fat buds.
Wave in the spring breeze
So sweet you can smell sugar about them
Fanciful and fun enough
To make us all feel like kids
Seeing them open, fresh-made
By the hands of God.
