The title of this picture was inspired by the poem 'Water Lilies' by Sara Teasdale. The poem reads as follows:
If you have forgotten water lilies floating
On a dark lake among mountains in that afternoon shade,
If you have forgotten their wet, sleepy fragrance,
Then you can return and not be afraid.
But if you remember, then turn away forever
To the plains and the prairies where pools are far apart,
There you will not come at dusk on closing water lilies,
And the shadow of mountains will not fall on your heart.
