Elfje, Poetry by Sarah


Inspired by Mick E. Talbot who introduced me to Elfje…

Sprout green
Their fingers reaching
Towards the golden sunlight

Author’s Note: These bulbs were in the ground when we moved into our house in 2011. Every year, I try to dig them up (I’m not a fan of daffodils) and the following year, they continue to pop up again. It’s become a bit of a household joke about the daffs’ resilience and persistence. At least I got a poem out of them this time…

Standing proud their ground,
while choking out my garden 
…hateful noxious weed!

your garden’s reward
