Where the robin red-breast made its nest,

there was a sweeping fence

overhung with subtle evergreen trees

beside the timeless garden of cornstalks,

spindles of beans,

and square strawberry leaves.

Wild Lilies

Emily Carr used to write about the fields of wild lilies in early British Columbia. If you are wondering what a wild lily is, well it refers in this case to any earth-bound lily in contrast to the gilded lily or fleur-de-lis. Your soul is like a prism issuing a rainbow of color. When you write, draw from contrast to lend depth to your work.
