Queen of the Night

 

  You become and bud in the suns daily light

 Only gracing us with your bloom in the darkness of night

Your petals open to the moons silky glow

Your aromatic beauty only few can know

The moment you bloom glorious and complete

Is sadly the beginning of your life’s last feat

You become a memory with dawns early light

 A nocturnal queen dancing on moonbeams to our delight
