THE LILIES OF THE VALLEY

THE LILIES OF THE VALLEY

I lay here in the lilies of the valley 
looking up at the sky woudering why
I cant stop thinking about you I see 
birds flying high in the sky I lay here
in  lilies of the valley  watching the 
butterflies fly by the yellow ones 
are my favorite, oh look over there
theres a rainbow, its so peaceful 
and quiet here I closed my eyes
I can feel the warm sun on my face
I don't want to ever leave this place 
I layed here in the liles of the valley 
all day in till the sunset and then
I saw how beautiful the moon 
and the stars shined  on the liles
of the valley and then I fell sleep
in the liles of the valley.

My Dear Greg,

You have written one of your greatest poems ever.  I can smell the sweet aromas of the lilies in every line.  Monet used his brush, but you have used the powerful pen.

I love the lilies of the Valley
Their sweet aromas bring me peace
My pent up freed emotions
So ardently released

All my love,
Larry xxx
