Daffy Love

I LOVE DAFFODILS! Do you? You can find some fun facts about them here at the Daffodil Society. Evidently, the French novelist Collete called them Jeannettes, so maybe that’s why I love them so. Well, I have no idea who the French novelist Collette is, but they make me think of SUNSHINE and that’s what we all crave right about now.

Daffodowndilly

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

Written by A.A. Milne

A. A. (Alan Alexander) Milne (1882-1956), famous for his stories about Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin, Tigger, Piglet and the rest, was a soldier in the Great War from 1915 to 1919 — including the Battle of the Somme. Milne’s poem “From a Full Heart” was included in The Sunny Side (1921), and prophesies his post-war retiring action from such woods as Delville, High, Mametz, and Trones, to Pooh’s “The Hundred Acre Wood.” Milne died in England in 1956

Love the last line, WINTER IS DEAD.

Have a daff-o-dilly kind of day!
