TO MOLLY, by LILLIAN S. RING
First Line: You are like a flower of two colors
Last Line: The seed of death.
Subject(s): Flowers; Life; Nuns
You are like a flower of two colors
A glorious radiant red where the sun has kissed
With leaves that sorrow has sered to a yellow.
You are an exquisite song bird
In the high walled home of a Catholic nun.
A beautiful burst of life that covers not entirely
The seed of death.
