Daffodils Still Bloom

daffodils
I won’t despair despondency
it’s there to state a case
which mordancy inflates
outrageously

but happiness appears
for my defence as if to say
it’s where you were before
the current doldrums came

the daffodils still bloom
in beds you planted where
their golden heads nod
avidly of their assent
