The Daffodils


daffodilsdaffodils

They come in their multitudes

Flower in silence

Without asking

Stay until it is time to go

Following the snowdrop

They paint the grass with yellow leaves

Where do they come from

Where do they go

The mystery of spring

Of the beginning

                                  The seed of Genisis

Their coming and going

Echo the same willing

Lighting our lives

Then vanishing

Like petals of snow

On the still water

The wonder

The beauty

The joy

They come in their multitudes

Flower in silence

Without asking

Stay until it is time to go

Following the snowdrop

They paint the grass with yellow strips

Where do they come from

Where do they go

The mystery of spring

Of the beginning

Their coming and going

Staying a while

Lighting our lives

Then vanishing

Like petals of snow

On the still water

The wonder

The beauty

The joy

The going
