The Lily In The Valley


The lily in the valley was there
Ask how?
Wait... didn't you see?
Though the petals seemed a bit undergrown
The roots were strong enough to hold it there
Undergrown from all the shade
And waning sun...
Plus the occupation would drop it's waste
And some boulders
There...
Quite the Shangri-la, huh?
Watch it wait anon
Thirsty...
For prediction and hope of soundness of judgements
Eh... we just sort of see a flower
The valley blended in with the seldom scenes
You lilies in the valley
Sprout without... and without
But you're still here
So a little different from the rest of the lilies
Those sun-bathed well-watered
Best of the lilies
Still...
You are beautiful without a doubt
So when they ask
Show them what to think about the less of the lilies
Those passed-by fast and not a scant of appealing
When it blooms... it just blooms
Not to clash or compete
Only using what it had from where it'd land as a seed
