30.10.14 daisy

There are daisies in the lawn

and a dandelion or two,
primroses and celandines
stand   out  here  and  there
violets just peeping through.
Catkins on the hazel boughs
still hide their rosy flower
but it won’t be long
before a cheer
salutes the thaumaturge
who shows us Spring is almost here.



Written for Margo Roby’s prompt to write about flowers, as well as for 6-Word-Saturday.
Thaumaturge was Dictionary.com’s word of the day a few days ago, and I just had to use it.  It means maker of magic, miracle bringer.

    Aaah, look at that charming little beauty. We had snow this morning. Melted quick enough though, so no complaints. >

    “How lovely a daisy would be right now,” he thought, while standing in thigh-deep snow, contemplating how comfortable he could be if only the temperature would rise to at least the freezing point.
