Every year I write about this iris
White and glowing in the early air
And every year I look at it and swear
That I will not write about it this year
I will not write about fluorescent petals
Or how it glitters when it’s drenched in dew
I will not write about the smile that
I cannot help but offer as its due
I will not write about anticipation
That makes me seek its mates in other spots
Nor how I love each bloom it offers
Just before the summer grows too hot
So every year I write about this iris
How could I not
