Day Lilies bloom

      in Central Virginia



      round the sixth day

            each June.


So sudden their sight

As that seen at night


When Fireflies


            with the moon.


Essential phenomena,

      to Central Virginia,


When these two

      first show up

            Sixth June.


First come the flowers,

Followed by showers,


The comets

      too close

            to the ground.


D-Day, Day Lilies,

And Fireflies abound:


A bloom with a boom,

A bug with no sound.


To Central Virginia,

Phenomena renown.


And here, in Virginia,

All three will be found:


D-Day, Day Lilies,

      and Fireflies

            a bound.
