Daisy field at sunset

Acrylic on canvas in a natural wood tray frame.


49 x 64 cm


Bring me flowers

Wild daisies

Clutched in your fist

Like a torch

No orchids or roses

Or carnations

No florist's bow

Just daisies

Steal them

Risk your life for them

Up the sharp hills

In the teeth of the wind

If you love me

Bring me daisies

That I will cram

In a bright vase

And marvel at
