Happy Earth Day!
The Last Daffodil
By Michelle Garren Flye
The day the last daffodil fell
Was truly a sad day indeed.
Leaves and heart turned to seed—
But I’m proud I knew him well.
Was he a politician with brittle skin?
A general whose advice was ignored?
A scientist with findings scorned?
A doctor whose patience wears thin?
No, he was just a simple flower
Whose beauty and life
And survival of strife
Was his only real power.
