MORE DAFFODILS

DAFFODILS

I saw Christ nailed to a tree

In an East London churchyard

Weather-beaten from looking,

While the adjacent graveyard

Played host to a thousand

Sloping stone soldiers.

 

There, daffodils bunched together

And it made me wonder

Why the graveyard should display

Such a profusion of yellow

When the churchyard itself

Was barren of colour

  1. This sets me wondering too Tom. There’s probably a prosaic reason, perhaps to be found in the minutes of the parish council, but your lines raise the question to a metaphysical level.
