LILY ON MARS
By Bill Warren 
(From Spacewarp 29, August 1949)

The arid waste of the alien land 
stretched far before my eyes;
and my fever'd brain in sickness 
saw strange, unholy things.

And as I lay on this red, dead world, 
and knew that I must die,
I prayed that I might see 
once more a thing that spoke of Earth --
not white, soft woman nor cool, green hills;
just a bit of Earth-grown life.

And then I looked, as before my eyes
a spot of green appeared;
and in this green, the green of Earth,
I saw a lily grow. 

It grew tall and straight, and nodded slightly
as in an Earthly breeze;
and in the dew on velvet white 
I saw my Earth, my home.
