Daisies – Ursula O’Reilly

Field of Daisies – Efim Volkov

Honeysuckle and fairy gems,
Strewn along summer lanes.
Picking daisies to make chains,
I trampled down my darker days.

The light was yellow buttercups,
Smiling on my journey there.
Joy came easy, no need for
Sumptuous gifts. All was there.
