Then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils. —-William Wordsworth DILLY-DILLY DAFFODILS Dilly-dilly daffodils in a lady’s tress, Sailing as she throws off distress. Blithesome in shades of yellow and blue, The yellow-buttercups a felicitous crew. Dancing fair maiden-esprit, free Of worry, no anxiety, Swinging gloriously — A merry-go-round, dizzying sashay. O how these pretty ladies brighten the day. Dilly-dilly daffodils splashing everywhere, Xanthous snow-shower of motherly care. Warms the rainbow of hearts, rocks Deep-dark dungeon despair into goldy-locks. Slays the Winter dragon, breath-stifling depress. Parades open-air confidence and playfulness. Dilly-O-Delightful daffodils trumpet applaud, bowing and curtsying — a faerie squad. Dandelions look on with jealousy, turn white, blow far, far away, leaving a lantern-light of palace gardens, star chandeliers, riverdale, green goblet-meadows, a sunshiny-fairytale. 3/12/2021 *For Caren Krutsinger*

I love this in its entirety. So jazzy and fun. Going straight to my FAVE list Kim. I started to highlight my favorite lines but there were no lines left I highlighted.
