Give the Devil his Hue

Crocosmia Lucifer at Hillcrest [1]

Give the Devil his hue,
His due, his clue, a few
Crocosmia Lu…
…cifer;

Upright swords of green,
Lean, pristine,
Hosts of hothead beaks,
Peaks of fiery blooms.

Awake arching stems,
Condemned to
Dip and sway,
Today, tomorrow, today.

See them, new,
His hue, his due, his clue,
By the Yew that sits in review and
Surrounds the scene.

Give the Devil his hue,
His due, his clue, a few
Crocosmia Lu…
…cifer.
