The Daisy Follows Soft The Sun

(the photo is of a daisy in my garden)

THE DAISY FOLLOWS SOFT THE SUN

by: Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

      HE daisy follows soft the sun,
      And when his golden walk is done,
      Sits shyly at his feet.
      He, waking, finds the flower near.
      "Wherefore, marauder, art thou here?"
      "Because, sir, love is sweet!"

      We are the flower, Thou the sun!
      Forgive us, if as days decline,
      We nearer steal to Thee,--
      Enamoured of the parting west,
      The peace, the flight, the amethyst,
      Night's possibility!

  4. that is beautiful.

    max had been eyeing 1 lone daisy that poked up under a small tree here.

    i tried mightily to keep him away from it but early this morning(about 6 a.m.) he ate it while i was walking him.

    that would be the beagle half. they eat anything.

    i felt bad about the daisy but max looked so self satisfied that i laughed.

    max-1. mom-0.
