Daffodils

Language: English

Oh daffodils, ye blow
The bugle-call of Spring,
Green lance in rest,
Ye stand a-breast
In glorious marshaling!
While golden trumpets blow
And dainty pennons fly,
Ye flaunt above your ancient foe,
And bid old Winter die.


Confirmed with Annie C. Dalton, The Marriage of Music, [Vancouver]: [Evans and Hastings], [1910] page 10
