Daffodil

The ephemeral beauty of the daffodil

Little yellow trumpet,
Defiant lest frost encroaches
Garden whore, lemon strumpet
Nodding gaily, as spring approaches

Narcissus, you vainly watch
Through my window – a looking glass
In your bed, she’s another notch
Smiling petals, as bold as brass

Betwixt the snowdops and the crocus
Your amber glow is the last to fade
‘Tis your one and only duty…
Keeping watch over bluebell glade

So stand erect little daffodil
Be proud and shine all day
Enjoy youth, drink your fill
Soon the tulips come out to play
