Fresh as a Daisy

Fresh as a Daisy

by Floriana Hall.


It’s crisp and fresh each morning,
Our new fallen snow.
It is white but has no odor
Unlike daisies I know.

To gaze at dazzling white
Is a rather pretty sight for the eyes, except
I’d rather it be out of sight, out of mind,
Not out my front and back door.

The snow turns to ice with zero degrees
Don’t mind the cold, but don’t like the freeze!
When winter blues or blahs are here
Life can still be a blast.

With birthday parties,
Valentine’s Day, President’s Day,
Any sunny day,
Those are things that will last.
