A Poem by Wandering Violet

green grass in Spring...




I run merrily in bare feet

blades make me happy



while a marmalade cat chews

indigestion cure



the edges turning brown

Dad’s weed killer spray



freshly mown clippings in a pile

decapitated daisies

Wandering Violet
I'm not sure that people are getting the message that this poem is kind of cynical in its tone... it has a rather ironic message while appearing to be a typical summery day!

within in my own individual choice i give this short and complete poem
a green thumb's up a great expession from a brief impression i like to
implicate for those decapitated daisy heads i feel remorseful for some of them
I enjoy some as wine thanks for your review i have mice nearby me
in a field one day and i kid you not i had seen one on a large leaf
floating up stream it was so cool mice are so clever the little mouse
wanted to cross over the water on his own accord and the little mouse did
