The botanical gardens in Stockholm
Have a round greenhouse, and every year,
If you’re lucky – you can see the world’s largest water lily,
Victoria Amazonica, in bloom.
The large domed roof of the greenhouse
Filters the light so that the room
Is filled with a magical green.
Some of the lilies were
Just peeking out of their pods
While others had already unfurled
Into petalled perfection.
