The Noble Nature    (Of The Day Lily)

 ><

It is not growing like a tree

In bulk, doth make man better be;

Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,

To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sear;

A lily of a day

Is fairer far in May,

Although it fall and die that night, –

It was the plant and flower of Light.

In small proportions we just beauties see;

And in short measures life may perfect be.

-Ben Jonson (England 1574 – 1637)
