Sharmishta R. Somayaji Quotes

    The Humble Lily

    The Humble Lily, smiling white
    Is so comforting and gives such a wonderful light;
    As early as Man can ever recall
    The Lily has made his problems seem small.

    The green stalk, the white petals
    Glistening like lustrous silver metals;
    Waiting for little birds to rest
    Underneath its widespread crest.
