The Mystery Lily

I glanced east across the yard

And there to my surprise

There was a mystery lily

From bare ground it did arise.

How can one day there be nothing

The next, this gorgeous flower

Indeed a magic wonder

And proof of higher power.

It reminded me of friendships

Whose leaves have died away,

But at times when least expected

When old pains have resurrected

Friends emerge from nowhere to make my day.

Ah! Wondrous flower

Ah! Friends divine

You grace my life and give me hope

 In ways beyond define.
