The sleek stem
grass green
and tall
and the
petals are like
jewels on a
queen’s crown.
Like diamonds,
even prettier
than ever.
Like a
disco ball,
giving light
to the room.
Like stars,
shining
through the
night.
The crisp,
green leaves
are like
emeralds,
sparkling
in the sun.
Like deep,
green eyes
staring right
at yours.
Ode to
a daisy,
my favorite
flower,
The beautiful
ones in my
garden.

    Dear Rachel,
    I think your poem is lovely. I was looking for a poem or verse about daisies to write in a birthday card for my cousin. The card is a beautiful photograph of daisies in close-up. I have written out your poem inside and of course told her where it came from. I thought your poem would be the one she would enjoy most out of all the ones I found.
    Thank you very much, I hope you continue writing.
    Best wishes from Christine Bruinewoud

    Great poem, Rachel. What a wonderful idea, to compare a flower to a disco ball. Who doesn’t love a disco ball? Your poem is fine and delicate, and is worthy of the daisey you describe so tenderly.
