Flowers are the smiles of God. When daffodils are in bloom
They come to bring a glad surprise, Joy after winter's gloom.
Spring breezes waft them into a dance, Each wears a golden crown.
All seem to laugh in merriment, While nodding up and down.
Oh! I am glad for springtime, The earth reborn again
And especially for daffodils Smiling forth to say, "Amen."
