Daffodils Sway for Saint David’s Day
Daffodil's the charming darlings of Spring Bringing joy that lifts the whole world to sing With their proud displays of nature's bequest They show the earth’s scenery at its best. A golden sensation, whence from the deep Daffodils raise pretty heads from their sleep Whimsical, magical stars of the hill Swathes of charm most bewitchingly tranquil. Picturesque scenes from dancing beauty queens Displays of the sort only seen in dreams Grasslands enchanting glow, row after row Swaying to and fro as the soft winds blow. When it's Spring again, lovers bloom again Daffodils bow down their sweet heads to them To the tweet of the lovebirds song they prance Happily sharing the thrill of romance. Long down the ages they have turned faces These wondrous hosts of exquisite ladies Bright yellow clusters o'er meadows and groves Where're there's space a daffodil grows. Gracing the Earth this enchanting flower In the manor of Queens of the Bower Today in their own spectacular way They shall sway to honour Saint David's Day.

Hi Jennifer, your garden must look amazing, I love yellow flowers and daffodils are my favourites. One of my fave songs is ‘Yellow’ by Coldplay. Hugs and love back to you ~ Thank you, Belle

Keukenhof Tulip and Flower Garden near Amsterdam is in my opinion the best for displaying daffodils in spring. Been there once.

This is so beautiful, we don't have daffodils in India. Checked net, beautiful flower. Your poem reminds me of daffodils by William Wordsworth. 7th and 8th line my favourite lines.

Thank you Rama, indeed the daffodils are beautiful flowers and they grow in abundance here in England. That poem by William Wordsworth is one of my favourites. All the best ~ Belle

It makes one wonder how "yellow" became associated with cowardice when daffodils brave winter weather to herald Spring. Well done, and happy Saint David day to you! Aloha! Rico
