The first daffodils of autumn will appear
When the leaves fall upwards to the trees"
~ from "Tonight at Noon" ~
"Come close, my love, and tell me
April will never end
That daffodil like gorse-bush
Will last to the year's end"
~ from "Song in April" ~
To accompany the daffodil imagery of
Liverpool poet Adrian Henri,
these beautifully drawn daffodils
are from the Botany collection at the
World Museum, Liverpool.
