Lycorine in the Living Room

Recommended Posts


An April whim of snow
bows proud stems
until the spring bloom teases
uncut winter grass.

She sees them after parting curtains
in the master bedroom:
bold gold Narcissi and a slender Tulip
with pale pink petals.

Before making a black coffee
she finds kitchen scissors, not daring
the man-shed for secateurs,
and cuts each broken stem.

The frills of Daffodils flourish for a week
in an Anysley vase. A wedding gift
from her lover. The Tulip withers. The sap
of Narcissi is poisonous to some.
