To a desert flower

that knew no rain

suffer not yourself

to perish but quietly

bloom and blossom,

spread forth your grace

and fill the earth with

your delicate scent.

.

The sun gazes down on you

the moon covers you with dew

the earth is bewitched

by your quiet charm

and the desert appreciates

your soft fragrance

.

O desert flower

so timid and rare

Go!  Spread forth

your grace now,

for the short moment’s

unfolding is a blooming

of a lifetime’s forever…
