Gladioli



when shadows knit together
in the waning moonlight
the vales breathe deep
shrouded in earthy sleep

but as upright as swords 
the gladioli stand
in brightly hued dresses
posed for a dance
seeing all the frilly splendour
and their waltz to silent tunes
the wind gently whispers
'adieu- for autumn looms!'


(the gladioli- also known as the sword lily-are tall colourful spires of blooms that flower only once a year, in the summer.)
