I am a Narcissus White

I am a Narcissus (White)

Once, I stole a glance
Upon my petalled like
Saw, they stood no chance
Of matching my delight

I turned from seeking beauty
In natures glory field
The bright, the gaudy, sultry
To none I’d ever yield

Standing by this pond
Reflection I do see
Of the one I’m fond
Me, admiring me

I’ll stand here till I die
Ignore those which I’m kinned
Obsessed with being I
Till perish with the wind.

I chose Narcissus (White)
Its meaning =Selfishness

    richard, that was great that you chose Narcissus. You , however, are NOTHING like its meaning! I want you to know that I put this one low for its not actually being a Quatern. gosh, why haven't i seen you around? Suddenly here you are. So glad to see you again, and I really enjoyed the read. Congrats.

    A delightful poem about this selfish flower. Reminds me of the wicked witch looking in the mirror and saying "Who's the fairest of them all! Me!" Not the correct wording, of course, but close. Good luck in the contest. Darlene
