in the shallow lake you thrive
with colorful and delicate petals
marvelously you rise up to inspire
in sparkling hues of pink ruby and sapphire

for poets you’re a seductive metaphor
in the thick of mud surviving in dreams
beautiful as you are derived
from the ancient Greek myths of nymphs

legions of races love your glow
an attraction in the water kingdom
a mythical nymph in the creek or pond
you’re a spirit living the life beyond…
