Lilies

The Lilies are in bloom.
Their colors are a delight, their scent, heavenly.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

The Lily

The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.
 
William Blake
28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827 / London
