The Lowly Daisy

The lowly daisy is a delicate flower, even though above others it does not tower.

Daisies can tell if he loves me or not, if I don't like the results I just pick a lot.

Many petals with their stiff white design, nested in a bouquet they look so fine.

Lowly little daisy a sign of summer fun, as the children in the meadow frolic and run.

A hiding place for rabbits to rest just a bit, fluffy little cottontails alert as they sit.

The round yellow center sets it off just right, a whole field of daisies, a beautiful sight.

The lowly little daisy seems not important at all, as much a part of nature as birds givng their call.

As the sun sets in the west matching their center, remember there are no flowers in the dead of winter.

Smile at the thought and step lightly as you go, so the lowly little daisy next year can grow.

Very sweet tribute to our dainty daisy of the field. Mine are so plentiful in the lawn, that I mark them so Bill or I do not mow them until they are well spent.
Hope you are feeling better.
