Paperwhites

By

Polyanthus: prolific bloomer,

one month from bulb to flower

on tall shoots green

Recommended: Default

against slant rays of February.

Tiny trumpets of light

for the house-plant winter;

scent of lilac crossed with rose.

Sudden ally, lustrous

in a season's darkening:

a wish sprouted

live from a friend.
