Fallen beauty with gossamer wings
The passage of time will inevitably fade
Your former peak glory
Even now as I look upon you
I realize I have already forgotten
The totality of you
In the memory of my mind’s eye
The small details of my love for you
Flash in momentary images

Of your milky petals white
Of your red speckled throat bright
Of your delicate curling tendrils

Composed by Nichole Hastings
