Fringed Lily

©

Published: July 2016

I gracefully bloom in July,
Clothed in a delicate silk,
Fringed with a delicate lace,
Sprinkled with the color of milk.

I desire to be free like the butterflies,
Floating and fluttering where they please.
I yearn to explore the world
And be as adventurous as the bees.

The wind blows me left and right,
But I am rooted to the ground.
The soil holds me prisoner,
But I hope one day I'll be found.

One day I may be discovered.
Gentle hands may reach down,
Free me from my prison,
And admire my beautiful gown.

This is a very beautiful poem. The inspiring topic and the perfect rhyme add charm to the poem. I can picture the lily standing in the field, a glimmer of beauty in its entire surroundings, while wishing for things mentioned in the poem. Isn't life like that too? We are just like the lily. We are bound to responsibilities and burdens. In the tiniest realm of our heart, we yearn for freedom and doing the things we wanted to do but we can't escape the twitches and twines of life, which leave only with a feeling of hope. I greatly appreciate the poem and its writer. Thank you.
