Daffodil time

The daffodils in my garden have been delighting me for weeks but are just about finished. West of the mountains the they are just hitting their peak. Rydal had their daffodil festival this weekend.

In time of daffodils by e.e. Cummings

in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me.
