~ Yellow Trout Lilies ~

They are found covering hillsides,

forest ground level wildflowers.

Look in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee,

the Great Smoky Mountains, too.

There are only individuals, not

clusters, but each separated.

Yellow perennials, strongly

defiant although delicate,

independent in their design.

Plenty of patchy leaves,

considered variegated

reminding one of a

smooth, spotted

charming frog.

Life itself has brown

leftover remains, which

may decompose from once

crunchy, crushed leaves.

Wet, soggy underbelly of

earth and heaven combined.

These lightly golden wild ones

look pretty while nestled

among remains.

Winter’s long gone,

left altogether, with bursts of

yellow displaying maroon “anthers.”

Enchanting bursts spread

everywhere “like wildfires.”
