Demise Of A Daffodil

Poem by Dee Daffodil

Petals wither,
Leaves wilt
Once a sunny daffodil
Soon destined for the compost hill

Petals wither,
Leaves wilt
Spring has come and gone
I must be moving on

Petals wither,
Leaves wilt
Goodbye.
See you in the spring

    Dee, when I first read this I had a horrible feeling you might be leaving, then I read the dates on earlier comments and was relieved. Great poem and thanks for sharing it my friend.
    Hugs David(Report)Reply

    Dee,
    Nice try!
    but, even in Canada - - -
    people cannot hibernate!

    There is something gently wistful about this one. More than just the wilting of a flower and the inevitability of change. Perhaps it is the word 'daffodil', it touches something very close to home. Lovely poem. Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxx(Report)Reply

    Unfortanately flower power is limited only by wintery seasons.
    It's too bad flowers cannot remain around all year to give the great outdoors it's
    forever beauty to be enjoyed by one and all.
    Great write kind mistress of the rhyming word.

    There is something about this that makes it a lot more than the first glance. It seems to me that it is a repost to Wordworth's incredibly under valued poem.. i like this as a skillfull piece of writing and as a jibe.(Report)Reply

    You've captured the transient nature of nature - like the way you ended with the positive - 'See you in the Spring' Warmest wishes, Justine(Report)Reply
