Death’s Flowers

 

 

asphodel

 

 

Some flowers are better said than seen,

More pleasant to speak than remember: asphodel,

The cyclamen; the mourning lily, white.

 

Regardless symbol, the gesture each may mean,

They call the distant call of a sombre bell,

Death’s flowers, arranged so artful, delicate.
