  LILIES  

Lilies, lilies, white lilies and yellow--
Lilies, lilies, purple lilies and golden--
Calla lilies, tiger lilies, lilies of the valley--
Lilies, lilies, lilies--
Bulb, bud and blossom--
What made them lilies?
If they were not lilies they would have to be something else, would they
             not?
What was it that made them lilies instead of making them violets or
             roses or geraniums or petunias?
What was it that made you yourself and me myself? What?
Alas! I do not know!

                                                                                 Don Marquis.
