The daffodils stand in yellow stillness.
Then moving waves of solar frills
sway in the fresh March breezes
and lift their floral trumpets
to greet the equinox sunlight.
Sprayed by squalls of spring showers
the flowers droop to the ground.
Revived, they stand and stare at the sun.
Six petals surround a frilled tube
on a flattened green stem
designed to withstand any weather.
When the air has been washed with wind and rain
the daffodils frolic in their groups again.
The flowers whose yellow solar glow
is a sign of spring’s brightest show.
