To Lilly

I am looking for words to describe what you are.
You are daughter to God, a unique exemplar
of the beautiful. Beauties by ways and means blush –
colour up – in the presence of you, as they hush.

As the lily superior is in the lake,
as the lily shows elegance futile to make,
you rise up from my soul as creation unreal
and let growth of the groundwork inadequate feel.
