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
Eat your heart out, Wordsworth.
