Every year in Ontario the white trillium magically appears replacing a carpet of snow with its stately and dignified presence. Here are a few pictures from Glengarry, Ontario, and a little poem by Milena Matcska celebrating its return.
The White Trillium
Trillium graceful, Trillium white,
Star of the woodland, Lady of light
Lo, how she prou!ily
Stands in the glade,
Queen of the shade.
Stately she rises,
Gracious response to Spring’s early call,
Lifting three leaf-arms
High from the sod,
Gazing with pure face lip at her God.
