Tiger Lily

Burst of beauty,
Petals orange bright.
Life's wonderment
With such vitality.

Life's wonderment,
What stunning attraction:
Enticing, drawing—
All breath now spent.

Stem now bending,
Wavering in the wind,
How do I want to hold her
With passion n'er ending.

Stem so slender,
Stem so verdant;
Petals so bright,
Petals so right.

How can I put up a fight,
With beauty and kindness
Or Passion and fondness
Of Love in such a light?
