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.
