Spring, as a picture of the Resurrection.

Clearly, she has a double life as a prostitute. She even wonders who's
knocking at the door since non of the neighbors know her secret. Lily's
are a dead giveaway for the devil.

I've attempted divination of this enigmativic verse. I supposed the lady
red to be a maple...the white to be snow..the annual secret is the future
blossoms..

On my first visit to her house in Amherst I looked for a hillside
nearby...there is one though it's impossible to know if there was a maple
tree or etc..
