what are words?
where are they born?

whence daffodil?
the tranquil jonquil,
or lilly dill of Daffy St Dafydd.

who knows for sure?
not narcissus
his own image.

nor I
weaving paths
of made up etymology
and nonsense rhyme
like quills upon
a fretful celandine.

alternative ending

like frills upon
the sun-filled celandine
