Daffodil Prayers

“Daffodils, that come before the swallow dares, and take the winds of March with beauty.” — William Shakespeare.

I wondered at the vibrant yellow,

the rich saturation of this bowing

daffodil, the happy hue 

of a fluted bloom that greeted 

me this morning,

It seemed the sun had poured

in its warmth, filled it 

with so much joy to share,

that the lovely flower stands

hour upon hour in the humble

stance of prayer.

—C.L. Fisher, March 2021

    “Bestow unto us the gentle glow of water
    From which our thirst be quenched
    For the promise of the fullness of life and sweet blooms someday.

    You are the faithful tiller who bent to gently lay us down. Thank you, for you now will water us and wait until we behold each other in the spring time.

    March 2021
    As promised, here we are in spring time to greet you in the morning, warm your heart at midday and whisper you farewell near sunset.
