Lady Daffadowndilly

~Christina Rosetti (1830-1894)

Growing in the vale
        By the uplands hilly,
Growing straight and frail,
        Lady Daffadowndilly.

In a golden crown,
And a scant green gown
        While the spring blows chilly,
Lady Daffadown,
        Sweet Daffadowndilly.

Last year I launched National Poetry Month with a poem about daffodils by A.A. Milne. I just found this one this week, so I thought I’d use it today. Last year I collected poems for April for months beforehand, but I haven’t done that this year so I doubt I’ll have one every day like I did before. Things have been a little topsy-turvy around here.
