White Orchid - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

There is a flower that resembles
A flitting moth in fleeting flight
So fair its name has launched an island
To natives' ever new delight

It is a flower that compares with
White doves in panoramic sight
It's purer than fresh snow in winter
Fair inspirations to ignite

There is a flower kings and nobles
Into their palaces invite
To beautify their lavish ballrooms
From breaking dawn to deepest night

As lovely as is the white orchid
I'll never own this bloom outright
Yet as I dream in my small chamber
Faith blooms in ever spreading light.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
