Photo by Ellie Burgin on
The yellow sun with its velvety rays
Of white, like the virgin snow,
Brightens the pathways and hedgerows alike,
No matter where they may grow.
The humble daisy, a pastime for kids
To make necklaces in a chain,
To pick for Mums and girlfriends alike
Again, and again, and again.
A common flower, so cheerful and bright,
A simple thing of pleasure,
They make me smile every time,
To cherish and enjoy at my leisure.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I suppose we have more dandelions than daisies – we made sunny chains with the dandelions as the only daisies were in gardens (and heaven help you if you harvested any of the flowers)!!
