Water Lily

       Water Lily

         I am famous: the sacred lotus,
         a symbol of grace and purity,

                           though to croaking frogs I am no more
                           than a hang-out joint, an all-night store.

         My petals enfold stamens of gold.
         I float, serene, while down below

                           these roots of mine are deeply stuck
                           in the coolest most delicious muck.
