Dull daisies droop low
Beside the lilies in their neat little rows.
Parched petals kiss the pavement,
As if too shy to show their faded ornament.
Reminding that beyond the blush of bud and bloom
The winter-bringing autumn looms.
Though sun is master for today
The Frosty thief will steal his warmth away.
And so the flowers now relinquish their plumage
And the trees will follow shedding their foliage.
Unimaginable in the moments dry heat
The dull daisies hint at the wet and cold of snow and sleet.
