PEONY’S TRIUMPH

I came, I blossomed,
I conquered your heart
with my soft blushes.
Now my petals lie heaped
like dry bones on the earth.

My glory departed for a season,
yet I hold in my heart the seed
of life – I shall sleep in the earth
such a short while.  Don’t weep.
After Winter comes the Spring.
