Roses come in many colours
black, red,yellow,white and blue
but a rose is a flower
that I would never buy for you.
Crysanthemums look like weeds
and Lillies smell too strong
I wouldn't buy these for you either
not even if I was wrong.
Carnations are a pretty flower
and Freesia's look good too
I have before and will again
buy some of these for you.
Some may say it's simple tastes
but I know that well or ill
the very best flower to buy for you
is the happy sunny Daffodil.
