Daffodils in a Spring Garden

I am participating in #SOL 2022. This is Day 24. Thanks to twowritingteachers team for providing this space to write, share, and grow.

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
― A.A. Milne When We Were Very Young

I love daffodils and try to plant a few new bunches every year. Our property has a total of 25 bunches in bloom right now. I look forward to seeing their smiling faces every March.

Daffodils in a Spring Garden

by Lynne R. Dorfman

Brighten your garden

with daffodils!

Early bloomers,

first flowers in March.

Bringing bold color

and exotic character

to any garden display.

Stems, strong and tall,

Dependable blooms.

A symbol of hope,

A cheerful sight

after the cold, ice, and snow.

  1. Both poems present a well-deserved tribute to daffodils. They really are a cheerful flower and it’s fitting that they spring up early displaying their “bold color and exotic character”. I bet your garden looks awesome. Never read the poem by Milne. It could serve as a good mentor text.
