The Flower

.

I bought you this flower

and on the way over

I saw that it had lost

three petals.

.

It is a daisy. I wanted

a big bright strong

sunflower, but all

they had were daisies.

.

I never liked the name

Daisy for ducks or women

but it’s okay

for a flower.

.

This one is for you.

Only two of the remaining

petals are a little wilted.

Pardon me, it is

my first daisy

for you.
