I missed the daffodils this year.

A whole month slipped by

As I walked with my head down,

My thoughts in other places.

 

I missed the daffodils this year.

A whole month locked in a room

Because I needed to study

My head in grammar books.

 

I missed the daffodils this year.

A whole month of uncertainty

Long-held plans slowly fading

My heart in turmoil.
