Lily-of-the-valley by Mark Andrew Heathcote


You’re immeasurably

Beautiful as was Eve.

But it’s you alone gleams


I wholly adore you.

I care not tears ensued

Duplicities treason

The Garden of Eden,


I leave for the woods now

Bracken, ivy here endows

Let this sweet potpourri-

Bequeath, poison me.


Enter my heart and soul.

Love, darken your eye kohl,

Not for their purity

I care incurably.


Or that hoary lustre

Marble alabaster

Your aroma I find

Soothes and leaves me resigned.


Like the roots of the soil

You totally, embroil

Ensnare I from head to toe

Like tree tops, mistletoe



Your sweet music finales

Touches my heart’s core

Bell-like tunes allure.
