Daisy



Daisy my sweet Daisy
in my garden you do grow
Your varied seeds
sprinkled on the ground rise up
some planted row by row

Your colors amaze
even cause quite a craze
Happy within my garden
you grow so tall or
choose to stay petite and small

Well known around the world
a spring and summer delight
From childhood dreams
to floral wedding streams
my Daisies shine so bright

When darkness threatens
a timid soul
weary of the struggle
And pain begins to
overthrow

There you are your face
so clear of obscure insensibilities
Glowing happily under the sun
your roots down deep
in stability

About this poem

Inspired by the beautiful Daisies in my garden.

    You created a beautiful mental image of a daisy. So much so that when I closed my eyes I felt as though I could smell it.
