Lily

Roberto Suárez Torres 1983 (New York)



As dawn bloom orchards,
'twixt a lot of hawthorns sharp,
sweet to the taste fruits;
yea, deep a well lush lily
that drips honey and syrup.

    When you're able to crush more poignancy and emotion into fewer words, then you have a gift few others possess. This is classic poetry at its finest. Thank you for sharing.
