Short poem

Marjorie Pickthall (1883-1922)

Daisy Time

              1See, the grass is full of stars,
              2Fallen in their brightness;
              3Hearts they have of shining gold,
              4Rays of shining whiteness.

              5Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
              6Bees they love the clover,
              7But I love the daisies' dance
              8All the meadow over.

              9Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
            10Singing summer's praises,
            11Up the field and down the field
            12A-dancing with the daisies.
