Nine-Days Flower (to Lady Jane Grey)

Look back into dusty past.

July brought two queens in a row:
After the Twain hero died,
Naming Jane for the regal role,
Enemies were not to hide.

Glued to dreams of crown and power
Ready came the Bloody Mary.
End of life of a nine-days flower.
You have found it all too scary…
