"If thou hast money for two loaves of bread,
Buy only one and purchase daffodils;
Bread feeds the body," great Mahomet said,
"But these are bright with sunshine from the hills."
In parables the ancient prophet told
How prose in daily life must have its part.
Bread concentrates in bone, but flowers of gold
Are poems of beauty that refresh the heart.
We hold the magic flowers tinged with light;
Our grateful spirits soar on splendid wings;
New worlds appear as we look up in flight
To find the far-flung universe that sings.
The broken bread lies in the earthen bowl,
While golden daffodils delight the soul.
