From the collection published in 2015, Spring Cleaning.
Cunning Little Things, Aren’t They
Are you aware that
daffodil bulbs are toxic
and no one in the animal kingdom
wants to eat them
What a clever plan those flowers have worked out.
Attractive and yet not prey.
I wonder how they did it.
I will not make the mistake of underestimating them
even if I see them settled in a pot and sold
in the grocery store.
