snow falling on daffodil

blue jays song
today a dirge
as warm snowy earth
worms confusion
through their
seasonal senses
they painstakingly
dig a hole for the fallen

the hopes of spring
crocus iris day lilly
dew drop tears
as they watch
the funeral cortege pass
for the daffodil
born to soon

epitaph carved
eulogy delivered
as we accept
some flowers
were never meant to bloom
