The gravedigger came by with a shovel,
   faulted me on leaving a single rose.

Wild Lilies

Emily Carr used to write about the fields of wild lilies in early British Columbia. If you are wondering what a wild lily is, well it refers in this case to any earth-bound lily in contrast to the gilded lily or fleur-de-lis. Your soul is like a prism issuing a rainbow of colour. When you write, draw from contrast to lend depth to your work.
