There is a swamp

Behind a house

That I visit

Once a week

 

I walk this bog

Searching for something

A rare and exquisite flower

That only a few have seen

 

I have glimpsed it a few times

Yet to have it vanish

In the blink of an eye

This, I know not why

 

This flower I've seen

Is priceless

Beautiful beyond belief

Yet only blooms once in a fortnight

 

A green stem

And yellow-green petals

Blooming all alone

As a lone wolf howls in the distance.
