Just Look For M' Lady Ernestine - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

The Daffodils in massed array
their yellow trumpets on display
are flaunting beauty shamelessly
. They see no need for modesty.
Their growing season all too brief.
‘Till time the ever present thief.
Robs them of their vitality
a crime of opportunity.
The early springtime beauty show
of yellow blooms which freely grow
along the verge of every road.
Natural beauty a la mode.
Some pass them by unseeingly.
For them I have no sympathy.

    Nor do I Ivor, they are such a feast for the eyes. Only today I saw a lovely vase of daffodils in my mother-in-laws house, double centred ones, they were such a picture of joy. Bless you again for another dedicated poem. I am totally spoilt by you.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
