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…
