What miracle of fragile blossoming!
This alien vine, this flinty mountainside
Cannot deny the urgency of spring,
And sinuous branches flaunt their purple pride.
But petals have a frail and fleeting day;
We sip their vintage only now and here.
No ripening wine remains to charm away
Tomorrow's dull regret, tomorrow's fear.
And yet the fading petals do not die,
For loveliness recalled has healing power --
A flagon of delight to fortify
The wavering spirit through a darkened hour.
O, never shall I lose the faint perfume
From canopy of frail wistaria bloom.
