Another Promise

The flower of rhododendron appears like a conical bell.
The form is so beautiful, though not handmade,
And so clear, though not rinsed with milk
Its petals are deep, though not curved with chisel.
For its long petals and strong pedicel,
A bee, inseparable from the nectar,
Promises to inhabit till the flower fades.
