"Daffodils that come before the swallow dares
And takes the winds of March with beauty."
One of the first flowers of springtime
Daffodils often bloom in the snow.
Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attained his noon.
Until the hasting day
But to the evensong;
And, having prayed together, we
Will go with you along
We have short time to stay, as you
We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay
As you, or anything
As your hours do, and dry
Like to the summer's rain;
Or as the pearls of morning's dew,
Ne'er to be found again.
