Winter Daisy

Winter Daisy

What expectations can we have,
You'll grow and bloom in adversity
Sun drenched others pick easier times,
From winter's decaying browns
But you chose to bud in that loosened grip
When autumnís mantle swathes the ground

Very True Bob and when the earth is dark and brown are we not thankful for this glimpse of colours gone?

Last winter was long dark and cold and l was glad to see it pass,now we are heading straight back for it and l will look forward to the daisys saving grace.
