The Amazing Yellow Daisy


I love to see the yellow flowers
As I travel to different states
It’s a very prolific plant
With all the appearances it makes

It seems to blend in nicely
With other wild flowers around
Although not so very pretty
When it lives in parched ground

It grows beneath a windmill
Adding a bit of yellow color there
Yes, strong and so resilient
But it seems to want to share

I’ve seen it too in Texas
Scattered throughout the state
It’s like it has a statement
That it truly wants to make

Yes, I love the yellow daisy
A sunflower it may be
It’s in most states that I’ve traveled
It loves to travel just like me!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
