White Lily


By Josie Whitehead

Consider the Lilies

Sweet lilies growing 'neath the trees,
Heads nodding gently in the breeze.
     White robed apostles, standing tall -
      Of flowers, most elegant of all.

Upon a coffin, simply lain,
You rest beneath the gentle rain
    And mark the end of life's hard fight -
    Three perfect lilies, pure and white.

Note:  The Bible:  Matthew 6:25-34:  Jesus said: 'Therefore I say unto you, Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment?' and: 'Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.'
