Trilliums

in the forest very deep

on a hillside tall and steep

awakened from a winterís sleep

are the trilliums


in Aprilís rain they do appear

under Mayís skies blue and clear

then youíll know that spring is here

sweet, sweet trilliums


a trioís white, true and fair

swaying softly in springtime air

thereís nothing here that can compare

to our dear trilliums


on a hillside tall and steep

I hear God speak to me in sleep

the secretís hidden, still and deep

among our trilliums
