Now this is perfection! What a thought provoking and beautifully written poem. The flow is perfect. And I, myself can't decide between lilies and daffodils, I appreciate the beauty of both, although lilies remind me of my Grandma.
Take care, Melissa Honeybee

They are both so beautiful in their own way...decisions, decisions...I can't decide either! I could be wrong (I usually am) but I also see in this 'the grass is greener...' theme. Regardless, wonderful writing, Sy!
To all my wonderful friends. This one flew the coo coo nest Daffodils are the symbol of life And lilies are the ones of death. Read it again and get the true meaning I intended. *L* Then I would like your answers again.
Beautiful poem Sy, perfect rhyme and flow... BUT me thinks its much to soon for you to be thinking about Lilies... your still a rose in bloom... and a timeless poet. creative and clever poem here my friend. miles to go before you sleep...*smile* jm
Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme, They are not measured by the commitment of time. Some emotions run too deep to be described by words, Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard. ~Janet Marie~

I wish I had come and read sooner, Sy, for I knew where you were going with this one... for my mother despised the lilies my father had planted for she knew their true meaning... and always told us to not give her lilies, but to remember her with roses...
