IMMORTAL FLOWER

IMMORTAL FLOWER

Gentle daffodil

How you sway with the wind

Nodding at the end of the pot

Looking below, enthralled

With a world you never knew

Gentle daffodil that seeks to go

Past the clay pot borders

Past the soil it’s planted on

The soil it has been growing on

The soil it was watered on

And the soil it has lived on

Oh gentle daffodil

Stray not from your post

You might end up snapped in two.

Exotic flower

How the curious commons would love to break you

-achalcyon.
