Lilies Analysis

House of LightI have been thinking

about living

like the lilies

that blow in the fields.They rise and fall

in the edge of the wind,

and have no shelter

from the tongues of the cattle,and have no closets or cupboards,

and have no legs.

Still I would like to be

as wonderfulas the old idea.

But if I were a lily

I think I would wait all day

for the green faceof the hummingbird

to touch me.

What I mean is,

could I forget myselfeven in those feathery fields?

When Van Gogh

preached to the poor

of coarse he wanted to save someone--most of all himself.

He wasn't a lily,

and wandering through the bright fields

only gave him more ideasit would take his life to solve.

I think I will always be lonely

in this world, where the cattle

graze like a black and white river--where the vanishing lilies

melt, without protest, on their tongues--

where the hummingbird, whenever there is a fuss,

just rises and floats away.
