Midnight Dance

Night Lilies is a painting by Mary C Farrenkop

after the sun has
bid goodnight,
and windows darken
by douse of light,
the tulips close
their tulip eyes,
and find repose
under midnight skies
but lilies perk and
take the chance,
to strut their stuff
in midnight dance,
the lilies, it seems,
are wild at heart
and find their joy
long after dark

oh, to be a lily!
