Shasta Daisy Mark II


One
plant,
Shasta
Daisy, owns
such easy beauty—
belies it's enduring nature. 

Needs no coddling; infiltrates, sprouts boldly year on year.

Tall, erect, flaunts pure white petals around a golden center; resists hungry 
insects. 

Wizard of plants, Luther Burbank, absorbed fifteen years to make the purest 
white color he loved; breeding, crossing, combining four— perfection.

Bend down— look: brilliant white petals, neon yellow center in a spiral nautilus 
whorl, all on a stout green stalk. How many petals? A perfect thirty four?  She 
loves me, she loves me not—count for yourself. Maybe average.
