EXTRACTS FROM AN OPERA: 2. DAISY'S SONG, by         Recitation         Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: The sun, with his great eye
Last Line: Lambs bleat my lullaby.
Subject(s): Daisies; Flowers; Spring


The sun, with his great eye,
Sees not so much as I;
And the moon, all silver-proud,
Might as well be in a cloud.


And O the spring--the spring!
I lead the life of a king!
Couch'd in the teeming grass,
I spy each pretty lass.


I look where no one dares,
And I stare where no one stares,
And when the night is nigh,
Lambs bleat my lullaby.
