Memory Of Daisies


Daisies to adorn your grave
are placed with ardent care.
Oh that I could tend to them.
Oh that I were there.

But here I am in another form
holding onto my pen.
only able to write to you
and think way back to when

Daisies grew in fields of white
and breathing became a chore.
I remember every word you wrote
and recited them walking the moor

that was filled with heather everywhere
but barren in my eyes.
Now whenever I see some daisies
I romanticize.

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
