A Lonely Daffodil

Updated on March 15, 2012

A little bit of nonsense.

This is another attempt at rhyming poetry, and was inspired by my countryside walk this morning. I hope you enjoy.

The beauty before us.

Captivating | Source


I was once a lonely daffodil, amidst a verge of green

My waxed golden head of hair, blowing gently by the stream

The dusty pale hue, of the primrose at my feet

Her buds so tight and uniformed, glanced at me discreet

Settled in the dry stone wall, she clung on with no regard

her pride in her home, is unyielding and hard.

She gently said “Good morning,” and slowly she tipped her face

As Spring yawned illusively, “welcome to my space”

I felt such terrible pain, that I never felt before

My roots they split underground, and now I am four

I look at my stem, and there to my surprise

I see another daffodil, dancing right before my eyes

Spring has arrived, and she sings her merry tune

“I will be glad to dance with you, in the sunshine, soon”

      I simply love daffodils, especially as they tell me that my favourite season is on its way, so I simply had to stop by. This is poem is lovely.

      This is a great poem. My son (4) had me read it 5 times. Now we have to research daffodils and Ireland. He has an old soul.

      Nice work. We don't get Daffodils in S. Fl., but I did grow them in Ga. I kinda miss them.
