WILD FLOWERS

  • YELLOW Kingcup, is it true
  • That Fairie Kings drink out of you,
  • Golden Kingcup full of dew?
  • “My cup is filled,” the flower replies,
  • “For Kings and Queens and butterflies.”
  • Creeping scarlet Pimpernel,
  • With your closed or opened bell,
  • Do you shower and shine foretell?
  • “Low lying on the dusty grass,
  • I am the poor man’s weather‐glass.”
  • Fiery Golans, you who glow
  • Like suns upon the marshes low,
  • From earth or heaven do you grow?
  • “A giant dropped us from his car,
  • Flakes of the sun’s own fire we are.”

  • Daisy, with a yellow breast,
  • More beautiful than all the rest,
  • ’Tis you can say who loves us best.
  • “I rise and spread beneath your feet,
  • In silver leaves, my portents sweet.”

E.K.
