Flower for he Day Peony III 5-26-16

Peonies look great even in white.


                    Late Spring

     This year the moisture has made the
     peonies outside my studio so
     heavy with their beauty that they
     droop to the ground and I think
     of my early love Emily Bronte.

     The cruelty of our different ages
     kept us apart.

     I tie and prop up the peonies
     to prolong their lives,
     just as I would have nursed Emily 
     so she could see another spring.
