They Only Came to See the Lupins | Lake Tekapo, New Zealand


Hues of purple, pink and white

The raiment of Queens tall and poised

Dye a meadow green and moist

Such iridescence a wonderful sight

Only by the persuasion of the zephyr

Do the Queens gently sway

A dance before the stalwarts faraway

The sun clads all in a golden gleam

Nature’s gifts now shimmering

Trapping sentience in a reverie

Revered are the Queens

Their beauty counted more in this tapestry

But sans the water, the mountains

Do they still shine?

When sunlight becomes but a shadow

And grass is no more than a coat of white

Will They still come to see the Queens?
