I Wish I Were a Daffodil
My First Poem

I wish I were a daffodil,
    a lovely little bloom,
Then you would come and pick me
    and place me in your room.
You then would soundly go to sleep
    with me in my pot,
And, while you dreamt I was a flower,
    you'd find out that I'm not.

1972, The Dark Ages

Donna Smith

Eat your heart out, Wordsworth.
