Daisy And Lily

Daisy is my funny bone. Lily is my heart.
Daisy makes me laugh out loud. Lily makes love start.

Daisy has emerald eyes. Lily's eyes are blue.
Daisy's fur is black and white. Lily's is beige hue.

Daisy likes to clown around. Lily is sincere.
Daisy tends to flabbergast. Lily's simply clear.

Daisy speaks incessantly. Lily spares her voice.
Daisy lets her emotions out. Lily casts her choice.

Daisy has "stranger alarm." Lily isn't shy.
Daisy has hesitant doubt. Lily wonders why.

Daisy has rambunctious streaks. Lily is genteel.
Daisy's traits are unrefined. Lily's charms appeal.

Daisy is a feral cat. Lily is Siamese.
Daisy's out to please herself. Lily aims to please.
