R is for Rain Lily

Inconspicuous little plant
your runners sneak
beneath the most ardent eye.

Little bits of grassy leaves,
barely visible entwined
with bigger garden plants.

Oh, but wait until Spring
and the first torrential rain
and a Rain Lily field will ascend.

Suddenly as if conjured
by a Garden Witch’s magic wand,
thousands of blooms arise.

Colors galore, pop up from the Earth,
lifting graceful petals from the snow as the sun coats the ground in its warmth.
