The Daisy's Answer

Written for The Hub's Second Official Poetry Anthology 

   I found a daisy by the side of the road

Chanting as I plucked each petal

He loves me, he loves me not

Hopeful for an answer

Longing to satisfy my heart’s desire.


My sweetheart gave me a daisy

Each petal was inscribed with his love

No longer do I need to chant

For now I possess the answer

My heart’s desire is satisfied.
