    Lilies

    deep breath that fills for lungs no trill of spring
    time cast, recounted down to dawn of day
    when all before traps seeping melt away
    to hold with frozen passions meant to cling

    decay believed forbidding; death as sting
    set darkly dank amid time shortened rays
    to mark such passing elegance delays
    below, asleep for winter’s flight of wing

    yet lo, comes yonder breeze of fairest view
    to dance again with lilies in the field
    when hostages long hidden stand revealed

    with sharpened glance inspect each waiting dew
    when soft caress of gracing meets the kneeled
    with wondered eyes full-flowed of gratitude

    This whole poem is beautifully metaphoric, emotive and descriptive.

    I especially enjoyed:

    decay believed forbidding; death as sting
    set darkly dank amid time shortened rays
    to mark such passing elegance delays
    below, asleep for winter’s flight of wing

      Thank you for these generous comments Dwayne. A sonnet is always work for me - so I'm glad to see that part of it 'worked' for you!
