The Daisy
 
Rennell Rodd (b. 1858)
 
 
WITH little white leaves in the grasses,
  Spread wide for the smile of the sun,
It waits till the daylight passes
  And closes them one by one.
 
I have asked why it closed at even,        5
  And I know what it wished to say:
There are stars all night in the heaven,
  And I am the star of day.
