AN ELEGANT RONDEL

17.07.1990



SPLENDID LILY, GRACEFUL FLOWER

GENTEEL MIDST NATURE'S SEDUCTIVE BROCADE,

YOU'RE A RENEGADE OF MUTE POWER UNYIELDING FROM YOUR SUN-TOWER,

A HARBINGER OF LIFE IN DEATH'S CHILL SHADE;

SPLENDID LILY, GRACEFUL FLOWER

GENTEEL MIDST NATURE'S SEDUCTIVE BROCADE,

OUR LORD'S DOWER OF HIS EVERGLADE

WISER THAN SOLOMON FOR WANT OF TRADE

SLAKED BY GOD'S ANOINTED SHOWER:

SPLENDID LILY, GRACEFUL FLOWER

GENTEEL MIDST NATURE'S SEDUCTIVE BROCADE.
