One is amazed
By a water-lily bud
With each passing day,
Taking on a richer colour
And new dimensions.
One is not amazed,
At a first glance
By a poem,
Which is as tight-closed
As a tiny bud.
Yet one is surprised
To see the poem
Gradually unfolding,
Revealing its rich feelings
As one reads it
And over again.
