Stargazer lily drops its last petal
in the midst of dreary drizzle
its last hint of fragrance vanishes
like a whisper subsiding into a sulky silence
all the beauty and luster
the brief flares of splendor
wander to the deep corner of yesterday
only the idly-falling raindrops
and the cold, wet soil
remember its last quivering elegance
