Daft Daffodil

Daft Daffodil

A Poem by Kathy Mc Cathy
"

Why are you poppy , jealous of rose and thyme ?

"

Curious and curiouser 

The daft  daffodil

It’s what everybody called her ,

Cuz she never kept her mouth shut

One day she asked 

“Why is it nobody asks questions and only live life the way they have “

The nonchalant poppy by her side said

“It's because we ne’er needed to ask “

The whimsical wise daffodil said 

“ I could ask a thousand questions , a hundred and million times”

I’ve got a good one right now 

Why are you poppy , jealous of rose and thyme ?

Sooo Original !!! and Entertaining, and Thought Provoking ...
And, Thanks Kathy for the mention! I am honored! :D You are a Natural 12-liner, I love it!
Rose(mary) & Thyme remind me of Simon & Garfunkle's beautiful song :)
Hmmm, if I were nonchalant Poppy, and if I were jealous of Rose and Thyme, I would attempt to answer your question with a question, which of course you would not let me get away with, so at your insistence (and feeling a sudden urge-to-honesty) I would say, "Because I wish I were as beautiful as Rose, and as spicy as Thyme."
Keeep it Uppp! UR Good ! :)

Beautiful how you have aligned the word flow. As a girl who cant keep my moth shut either I wish I was in the garden of flowers too, so I could have had a beautiful conversation with them. Nice to see so many young poets here.

What a great metaphorical poem you write here....sometimes an overly jealous person wants to instill jealousy in other person's mind because that way the person wants to draw a parallel line for him....nicely penned

It's cool that you were inspired by a line in Dylan's poem to write this. I like how the daffodil and poppy become metaphors for human emotions, such as jealousy.
