A Mariposa Lily
By Milicent Washburn Shinn (1858–1940)
 
SHELL-LIKE lily, flushed with faintest color,
  Hid in long grass up the mountain-side,
Where the loud brown torrent’s roar comes duller,
  And in simple gladness you abide,—
 
Am I heartless that your whole of living        5
  Thus I take to please her for one hour?—
Yet I ask of you no greater giving
  Than of mine own self, poor wasted flower.

  1884.
