My Messengers.

I SAID to the lilies,
                           ‘Carry for me,
          Carry a song to the Sweetest!’
       They nodded and said,
                           ‘Our sister is she,
   That loveliest lily thou greetest.
                O gather and send us,’
   lillieswis15             they whispered to me,
     ‘And bid us bloom
             fragrantly near her,
         To waken her smile,
                rejoicing to be
         Thy message of
         comfort to cheer her.’
