The Song of the Iris Fairy
I am Iris: I'm the daughter
Of the marshland and the water.
Looking down, I see the gleam
Of the clear and peaceful stream;
Water-lilies large and fair
With their leaves are floating there;
All the water-world I see,
And my own face smiles at me!
~Cicely Mary Barker
Wild yellow Iris' grow in the marshland here on our piece of the north coast. They are absolutely beautiful and last for just a short time, but grow in abundance in certain area's. Riff and I were walking our dog, Gus, the other day in a spot where so many wild Iris' were blooming. It was absolutely beautiful but my picture taking skills with my phone leave a lot to be desired, so the photo's I took do not at all show you the beauty of these wild flowers. Next time I'll drag my camera along for some better shots.
Happy Alaphabe-Thursday all!
Pop over to Jenny's Off On My Tangent to see others take on the letter I.
~May you all be blessed with wild Iris' ~
