Worms and Flowers

Daffodil Acrostic

Posted in Daffodils by Lzyjo on April 7, 2009


Daylight graces three nodding heads.

Auras of sunlight, like halos surround,

Flirtatiously curled petals,

Featherlight papers and delicate buds.

Oh, buttery cheeks and glistening stems.

Daffodil delight in morning light

Immortal ivory, alabaster and lace

Lovely courtesan of the garden, wearing golden crowns.

    And sappier than a petunia. You can blame it on Wordsworth.

    Wordsworth, huh? I’d love to be a daffodil in his garden!

    (beautiful photo!, BTW!)

    Thank you for the compliments. It’s fun to play around with those photo-editing programs. It’s easy to get a little carried-away though.

    I can’t help but think of those first few lines of the Wordsworth poem when ever I see daffodils.

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze…

    This is lovely, both the words and the images.
