Daffodils - Poem by James McLain

She doesn't mind the great length
or the girth of it.
Bushes without leaves
are not green as he kisses it.
The woods
are not deep without tree's
that are seen.
While the path that she walks
he chose in her dream.
Stopping she dropped what it was
that he picked.
A daffodil that bleeds white sap
if too hard it is picked.

    A lovely poem. And as Bri mentions, it does have a strongly hinted sensual quality to it. (Report) Reply

    a month later i read KK's comment (below) . allium? you must have changed the photo since he saw it, he's joking, or his eyes are not good. i don't think he would lie!

    i like the poem, especially for the rhythm and rhyme (and photo) . a few typos i'll excuse, but if you care to discuss them or just ask/tell me to change them in the August showcase [where i've put this poem] let me know.

    i at first thought this might be a disguised sex poem. i'm still not sure.

    this is interesting and will probably get some people thinking, but i left my thinking cap in another state, so this part is TOO DEEP for ME! :

    The woods
    are not deep without tree's
    that are seen.

    thanks for sharing. bri :)

    Lovely poem, but the field of allium photo kinda threw me.
    Thanks for sharing
