The beauty and mystery of life and art are brought together when a little girl presents lily bulbs to Emily, and in return receives a poem and a wish for understanding: "Perhaps in time they both will bloom."
Mother's piano playing captivates "Myth", the recluse across the street, who invites her to play. It's spring and the little girl has set lily bulbs on her windowsill. When Mother visits Myth, the little girl comes too, dress pockets bulging. On arrival we learn Myth's real name is Emily. Emily hides upstairs, calling down how she loves the music. Under the sound of the piano, our girl slips upstairs to give Emily a gift of two lily bulbs. Emily responds with a poem that inspiring a love of life and the World.
