Opus 1623

Phillip A. Ellis

Grow thus the flowers, ancient, fair of face,
   efflorescences arcane, blooms to treasure,
   grow thus the blooms unknown in ancient place,
a rose perhaps of murex, of vast measure
compared to ancient blooms. Emblems of pleasure,
   emblems fair, emblems young, emblems antique,
   speakers of tongues forgotten, raised in leisure,
come, witness blossoms common, blooms unique,
come, witness the many flowers of eld Zothique.
