Flower-Dance by Myra Morris

| No TrackBacks
The white lady lilies
   Dance a minuet,
Dropping stately curtseys
   Where the lawns are set.

Silken-frocked godetias,
   Under Summer's spell,
Twinkling in the sunshine,
   Spin a tarantelle.

Blowsy scarlet poppies,
   Flaunting every frill,
In among the grasses
   Whirl a wild quadrille.

The wind has led their frolics,
   Tapping seeded drums,
Singing, "Dance your blithest --
   Old Man Autumn comes!"
