You grow in families
Smiling at me when I step through your hallways
You have little tiny suns
In your middles, and petals
That feel like soft, damp leaves on crisp fall days.

I love you the best.
Your attitudes are always kind and cheery.
We make you into chains
To ring around our heads
I may not understand, but I've a theory.

I wonder, when all the flowers
Get together and they choose up sides
To see whose scent
Is most appealing
Which of all of them decides?

When I smell gardenias
Or admire the iris, the tulips' rank and file
I love them all
But not as much as
Watching daisys smile.

So I think that maybe others
Turn to scent or lavish blooms to be our choices
Your families grow
As if they know
True beauty lies in daisy voices.

This is wonderful... sweet and evocative. Thanks for sharing this...

BTW My grandmother loved daisies too. I never understood our (English) obsession with getting rid of weeeds from lawns, when daisies actually make lawns look better.

The simple charm of the daisy is well summed-up in this poem. Very much enjoyed...

Katy, I don't know if you've ever heard of a magazine called "Ideals." They publish poems like this. You might try looking them up and see what you can do.

Ah, Daisy. Used to go out with a girl named Daisy. She used to drive me crazy. Daisy weas . . . oh, forgot myself. I agree that the daisy is a star shining brighter, and who makes the world a better place by just being here. I also believe that you are in that category of making the world a better place.

Daisies are simplistic beauty..they are much like the child that faces each day with a smile, never being aware of earthly anger. I love the way they fill the gardens with radiance..allowing their onlookers to pause in imagination..
Excellent write Katy!

Hey, Katy, if you keep putting new poems on the site, I won't get to read others poems or not get a chance to do so...and speaking of Daisy chains, I seem to recall another usage of the words, LOL! A beautiful one from you this time, Miss the smells you have evoked in my memories...Ed & Rufuz

FLUSH! by Tom Kitt

Flush! takes you on a poetic journey that touches many areas of human experience. But, in spite of the diversity the poems have a common resonance or theme that is ancient and agel..
