Formal Elegance - Poem by Anita M. Diaz.

White orchid! White orchid!
Beauty of the full moon's light!
Please and praise us tonight!
In poise and elegance of hue!
White orchid...a gift...elegant
Butterfly of black!! Stand
And rest amid your petal sin view!
Thank you fear Lord for
the formal butterfly of black
Amid the beauty of
The orchid of white!
Forever formal in elegance.

    Reflecting the moon
    Praise us tonight
    dissolving the gloom
    Sing your fragrant song,
    for us to share
    Please make it long
    For we really do care
