Of Bulbs & Things- -(Daffodil Planters) - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

Your brilliance crumbled like my shattered light bulb
All electric- 75 watts of lost power- -
Shattered illumines of genius and enlightenment, it is
The light gone as are my Spring flowers;
My daffodils came up too early this year- - -
You like the unforgiving frost took them all
Gone just like my 75 watt bulb- -blown
Now, i must plant more bulbs come the Fall;
