How can you say
Your life doesn’t matter,
You make no difference,
When there are daffodils
Blooming by fence and tree,
Scattered tulips mixing
With the daylily’s
First tender shoots?
The fat squirrel can’t
Thank you by name,
But even he knows
Without you this world
Would be a harsher place.
You say anyone can
Plant daffodils,
Or tulips,
Or daylilies.
Yes, anyone can.
Someone might.
You did.
