Wild Tulip

by Hilda Conkling

Mottled like the tiger-lily leaf,
With black necklace clinging,
(Of course it has a green cloak!)
God has made a tulip.
He made the glacier like a moving jewel,
He made the tulip
Like a red cloud lighted by the sun.
I wonder how it feels to make a flower
Or a glacier like a great dream!
