Some roses are red
Today I saw tiny violets in a field near a playground
among wild daisies and mallow leaves. They were blue—
an unmistakable primary—five petalled, ivy leaved: violets,
not speedwells or baby eyes. White centers
which little girls poked. I watched to see if they'd weave
daisy crowns. They didn't
and I didn't teach them.
Perhaps they were sweet and perhaps I wasn't.
